Regency Wrap Dress

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I have always wanted to make a Regency Wrap dress. Our annual Regency Picnic gave me the excuse. My sister gave me the fabric as a remnant, and it worked out perfectly. I love the way this dress fits. It's a very comfortable. I will probably make a couple more of these later on.

What you will need

  • Poly/cotton blend fabric
  • braided trim
  • buttons
  • skirt hooks
  • hook and eye closures.

Q&A with Tonia

ticadea asked:
This is wonderful. Do you have a pattern number that you used? Would love to make one for an SCA gathering.
Tonia answered:
Thank you! I drafted this pattern myself. However, I based on the half robe from Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 1, on approx. pages 48-49. I only drafted the bodice, and just draped the skirt panels. I hope this helps.
