Regency Wardrobe!

Hi again! As promised, here is a little sideshow of our combined regency wardrobes for the Festival. We both also have the appropriate undergarments (not shown) maybe you can find a picture of those in an older post. 


Mum's lavender bib front


I call that one my ''candy'' dress. It's a wrap-front dress. 

This is the only outfit I didn't make myself. The dress and bonnet were made by my friend E's mum and the cloak was bought in Glastonbury. 

Mum's blue stripy dress, made from old sheets, and her yellow spencer and bonnet made with yellow linen and lined with various fabrics. The bonnet was made using a dollar store straw hat that I refashioned. 


The white eyelet one. You may recognize it from last year

Close-up on the yellow spencer and bonnet (and of my gorgeous Mum)

The insane shawl I knitted over the 4 previous months. So much work, but so worth it!


The blue muslin from last year, and a new bonnet I made from a straw hat I had in my wardrobe. I cut it in the right shape, and blinded it with silk bias and decorated it with a lace flower. 

The orange sari ball gown. Bib front and all made of silk, except for the underskirt. 




Mum's sari open-robe. Wish I had taken more pictures of that one! The dress underneath is a simple off-white muslin drawstring dress. The open robe is made of a vintage silk sari. 


Same orange ball gown, different headdress. 

My white bib-front, made with an old duvet cover. 


Our silk taffeta ball gowns. Mum's is a bib front and mine is a wrap-front. 



The candy dress in action. After that day it was all grass stained and one of the seams was partly coming apart. You can see the lace flower on the bonnet also! 


Hope you liked it!

  1. Beautiful! I am so jealous once again, but really happy for you. And I love that a lot of your fabric is repurposed.

    1. Hi! It's a pattern from ''Jane Austen knits'', I think it's the 2014 edition. The pattern is called Fitzwilliam's gift I think. Happy knitting!
