Regency Era Gowns and Dresses

We're continuously developing this line of elegant Regency era gowns and dresses. Here you can find gowns inspired by your favorite Jane Austen books, or movies, such as Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. Also known as the Federalist or Napoleonic era, The Regency era filled women's closets with romantic dresses, delicate curves and lots of femininity.

The Regency era, which took place from roughly 1790-1820, focused on Greek-inspired styles in fashion. Empire waists and lightweight, often gauzy fabrics were extremely popular, and women wore three layers: A chemise, corset and gown - with or without a Spencer jacket. There were no harsh angles from pervious years of fashion, the style was curvy and romantic.

Popular headwear styles included poke bonnets, straw cartwheel hats and feathers. Women wore their hair in ringlets and delicate wisps around the face.

At this time we are developing an extensive line of Regency clothing. We invite you to email us with pictures and requests of the Regency fashions YOU would like to see us offer. We welcome all suggestions gratefully!
