Bring the Regency period to life with 26 beautiful and historically accurate patterns of gowns, jackets and spencers, ball dresses and other clothing of the era.
This stunning collection will both guide and inspire any costume maker, whether you are channelling your inner Jane Austen in demure morning dress or are the belle of the ball in a sumptuous evening gown.
Every pattern is drawn to scale from existing Regency garments that have not been previously documented and, in some cases, never displayed before. Detailed descriptions and photography give an invaluable insight into making these period pieces.
