Regency Pattern Directory

Dresses

Underpinnings

Outerwear

Headwear and Accessories

Books with Scaled Patterns

This is a list of patterns for regency clothing. Note that some of these are not particularly accurate (for the most accurate options, look to the scaled patterns) and that I cannot speak to the quality of the pattern or the ease of use for most of these. I have included sources, but I have not shopped at all of them myself.

Stores I have shopped at and can recommend are Patterns of Time and Wm. Booth, Draper.

If I have included a link to your work and you would like me to remove it, please let me know (just comment below). If you have any additions or revisions to offer, please also don’t hesistate to comment.

    The last book I know that has patterns is Modesty to Mod from the Royal Ontario Museum 1967 which has a pattern for and 1823 dress

    Thank you for this lovely list!

  2. I appreciate that you have links to multiple sources. The Sense & Sensibility patterns do not turn out well without major altering. Even wearing period correct underthings and fitting it to your size, I still had to take almost 12″ of fabric out of the waist of my spencer jacket. The Country Wives patterns are okay but the directions are often confusing.
