I’ve decided which of my inspiration dresses is my absolute favorite - the lovely American example from (where else) the Metropolitan Museum! c. 1810-15, Met Museum Thanks to the high resolution photographs and detail shots on the Met’s website, I was able to decipher things about this…
Shirt | Met Museum | 1816-17
This lovely linen shirt is what Mr. Darcy would have underneath!
One of my favourite military-inspired pieces:
Spencer, Underbodice and Skirt | KCI | c. 1815
I don’t know if this as exciting for y’all as it is for me but..
1812 | 1814
My newest project is complete! I started a set of short stays over Thanksgiving break, worked furiously for 2 days, and set them aside until I finished the semester. Happily, I picked them up again after finals and they’re done!
I haven’t included any photos wearing them because they are quite low and revealing.
For more info and construction details and a couple more photos, check out my blog! :)

Two earrings supposedly from the Regency era (both ca. 1810), although they look rather earlier to me! Particularly the second example.
Still, that first pair would be so easy to find in modern stores as an easy solution to the “period look”!
