Simplicity S8941 Regency Gown & Robe Sewing Pattern is a beautiful, easy-to-make historical costume perfect for Jane Austen events.

The gown consists of an adjustable bodice with a gathered front and fitted back, which can be made with 3/4 sleeves and no train, or long sleeves and a full train. The open robe features a fitted bodice that hooks in front and is designed to be worn over the gown, and can be made with long sleeves or short, and with a train or not. All of the pieces in this pattern are interchangeable.

This costume can be worn without stays. The underbodice is darted at the bust, which can easily be adjusted or eliminated to be worn with stays as well. The gown features drawstring closures on the overbodice at empire waist and bustline, which allows for adjustability and preference for fit.

A similar gown to this pattern is featured in The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking. Use the included Simplicity pattern instructions for machine sewing, or follow the hand-sewing tutorials in the American Duchess Guide to create a historically accurate ensemble.
