    I love your website. 🙂 I am crazy about all things Regency and Victorian (especially the clothes! ) I have been to the JA Festival for the last few years, but this year will be the first time that I take part in the promenade – I am so excited!

    Hi Issy, thanks for the positive feedback. I have loved Georgette Heyer and all things Regency for many years, and have only recently started to make (or should I say ‘attempt’ to make) costumes. As I get better I will progress to making period fashions.

    Taking part in the promenade is fantastic! I love getting funny looks from passers-by as we make our way to join the promenaders.

    I have enjoyed seeing your site very much. I am a first-time seamstress and wanted to make a spenser from either Sensibility or Mode Bagatelle pattern but am quite terrified of beginning as I am not an Empire shape, having a large bust. Also don’t know which sort of day-dress to make; which is easiest and what will suit me. Help please. Also can I join your mailing list? Annabel

      Hi Annabel…I am also a novice seamstress…it took me a couple of years and metres of calico to make my first Regency dress! Now I have discovered patterns.

      The Sense & Sensibility drawstring dress is fairly straightforward, and suits all shapes and sizes, but do make some suitable stays to wear with it, as underpinnings are important for the correct Regency shape. (Saying that, I really do have to make myself some short stays that will fit better than the first ones I made!)
      Good luck, and don’t be afraid. Use some cheap fabric or calico to make a mock-up first, in case of mistakes…and never give up! 🙂
