Sarah’s Jane Austen Festival Dress | Sense & Sensibility Patterns
ca. 1813 Regency Gown
Writes Lynde Mott, the artist who sent me this photo, “This belongs to my art teacher, who is an expert in the West on historical clothing from 1800-1850. She is amazing! She has a three-volume dissertation for her Ph.D. and a clothing collection of 30,000 items. She bought this dress in Scotland for $300, and she dates it to about 1813. Can I just tell you, when I saw this dress I very nearly fainted.”
