The Chemise a la Reine is gathered on a drawstring at the front neckline, under the bust, and at the waistline.

1790s Dress - $295
This dress is based on an original 1780s gown that was altered to suit the fashions of the mid 1790s. The original dress was made of floral printed cotton that was fashionable during the 1780s. The gown’s waistline was raised to just under the bust, reflecting the changing fashions. The reproduction, like the original, has a full underskirt with a ruffle at the bottom, and an overskirt opened in the front to reveal the underskirt. ¾ length sleeves. Lace or silk organza trim at neckline and sleeve edge optional.
Drawstring Bodice Dress based on Pennsylvania Original c1790-1810, ¾ Length or Long Sleeves - $185
An original dress from Pennsylvania served as the inspiration
for this pattern. This dress is patterned exactly like the
original greenish brown silk dress. Similar dress styles have
been seen in many colors of silk and cotton with both long
sleeves and ¾ length sleeves. The dress bodice and skirt front
are gathered on drawstrings at the neckline and under the bust.
The front of the bodice is unlined like the original. The back
of the skirt is knife pleated or gathered and sewn to the bodice
back which is gathered at the neckline and waistline and
stitched to a fitted lining of linen or polished cotton. A bum
roll was sewn at the back ‘waistline’ of the original dress to
provide fullness to the back skirt of the dress. A Mock-Up is
not usually required for this dress style.
c.1798-1805 Morning Dress - $195
This dress is based off of an original dress c.1798-1805. The
original was made of white cotton with a small purple geometric
pattern. The original had short sleeves with detachable long
sleeves under them. This dress would also be appropriate with
various styles of short sleeves, long sleeves and ¾ length
sleeves. The dress features a stomacher front opening with
diagonal tucks sewn into it for ornamentation. Stomachers could
be made of embroidered or beaded fabric, or the fabric can be
gathered or trim applied. The dress could be made with or
without a train. Suitable for Day or Evening depending on the
type of fabric used.

c. 1795-1800 Half Robe or Dress - $195
Patterned from an original Half Robe of Slate Blue Striped
Brocade, this piece of clothing is perfect for casual day wear.
This garment consists of a high waisted bodice with short skirts
that are smooth in the front and pleated behind, with elbow
length or long sleeves. The original robe was altered from a
c.1780 gown, proving that even those less prone to follow the
whims of fashion might be seen in this garment style by the
mid-1790s. This would be worn over a long gown or a petticoat.
Usually made of printed cotton or silk.
c.1795-1805 Robe - $225
Open Robes were worn over dresses for day and evening occasions. The pattern is based on an original robe of cream silk with raised diamond pattern.

The back of the robe is fitted and has voluptuous box pleats, the fullness of the skirt falls in a train at the back. 3/4 length sleeves.
Bodiced Petticoat – ideal for use under sheer dresses - $100
Because of the high waistline fashionable during the Regency era, petticoats reaching to just under the bust were required to give the proper silhouette. This style of petticoat was either held up by a full bodice, or simply straps. The bodice helps provide support and is often necessary for sheer gowns with no bodice lining. Petticoats were often made in white cotton or fine linen for day wear. For evening, colorful silk petticoats were sometimes worn under the fashionable sheer white dresses.
High Waisted Petticoat with Straps (no bodice) - $75
This style of petticoat is held in the proper position just under the bust by straps made of cotton tape and is appropriate in white cotton or linen.
c.1790-1810 Shift - $50 (Machine Finished Seams), $75 (Hand Finished Seams)
Shifts during the Regency era changed from the previous eras. Sleeves became shorter and narrower to fit under the fashionable sleeves styles. Shifts were made of fine white linen or cotton. All edges were finished to stand up to frequent launderings. This style of shift features underarm gussets, a drawstring neckline, and hand or machine felled seams.
Apron with Bib - $30 (price includes fabric and supplies)
Aprons were worn for fancy and for work. This style of apron is appropriate for working. This apron is knife pleated to a bib front that pins to the dress bodice, and includes cotton tape ties that tie either at the back or front of the wearer. Period aprons were made in linen, cotton, and wool. Wool is known for its fire retardant qualities and is the perfect choice for open hearth cooking.
Fancy Apron - $35 (price includes fabric and supplies)
This style of apron is perfect for indoor day wear. Whether embroidering a hankerchief or serving tea, this apron adds the perfect look to your gown. Fancy aprons were often made of sheer cotton or silk, plain or embroidered. This style of apron is lightly gathered to a delicate waistband and ties just under the bust – at the ‘waistline’ of your Regency gown. Edges finished by hand.
Cap - $45 (price includes fabrics and supplies, untrimmed)
Caps, which were worn faithfully during the mid-18th century, were being discarded by the late-1700s. They continued to be worn by older or less fashionable women for modesty and to cover the unstyled hair. For evening they were usually abandoned. Caps were generally made of fine cotton, linen or silk and sometimes featured gathered or pleated trim in the same fabric or with silk ribbons. Made from Cotton Organdy or Linen. Machine sewn with hand detailing on visible edges. Many styles available, please inquire for specifics.
Stays/Corset - Prices start at $225 (price includes all fabrics and supplies)
This era was a time of a rapidly evolving silhouette, and undergarments reflect this change. In the mid-1700s heavily boned stays were worn to shape a woman’s silhouette, pushing up the bosom and providing a conical look to the waist. By the late-1700s, as the waistline of the dress rose, Stays were becoming less heavily boned. The silhouette leading into the 19th century required undergarments that supported only a woman’s bosom. Corsets with only rows of cording were used, sometimes with straps and often with cups for the bosom – a completely new idea. These cups were sometimes constructed by gathering fabric and other times made with gussets. So, there are many style options available for providing the proper support for your Regency wardrobe. Please inquire for style options and specific pricing. Prices start at $225 (price includes all fabrics and supplies, silk additional) and vary based on style. Large pattern matching - $30 extra (for example, matching of large brocade patterns on silks).
Neckerchief with Hand Finished Seams - $25 (price includes fabric)
Worn for modesty, these triangular neck scarves were often made of fine sheer white or ivory silk, cotton, or linen. Sometimes the material was embroidered.
Sheer Silk Organza Rectangular Shawl with Hand Finished Edges - $55 (price includes fabric)
Shawls were often worn with evening wear for warmth and to add color to the attire. Hand finished edges.
Bum Roll - FREE with any Regency Dress or Petticoat purchase
During the 1790s into the early 1800s, the fashionable silhouette required the aid of a small bum roll to be worn under the back of the dress to give fullness to the skirts there. Bum Rolls were often tied or sewn into the back of the dress. Often they were made of the same fabric as the dress or the lining fabric. FREE with any regency dress or petticoat purchase. If you like this silhouette, please request that one be sewn into your dress or petticoat.
Trim - $15/Hour (Plus cost of trim. An estimate on cost of trimming will be given upon request and varies based on amount and style of trim.)
