The following is a small sampling of some of the garments that one can create with our patterns. However the full range of the wardrobe that can be constructed is limited only by your imagination.



La Mode Bagatelle's Regency Wardrobe Pattern will help you to be properly dressed for your next Regency event. With the use of different fabrics and trims, you will be dressed to breakfast with Eliza Bennet, have tea with Emma Woodhouse and meet Captain Wentworth in the candlelit assembly rooms. These Patterns require only basic sewing ability, but may be embellished to your heart's desire. As Jane Austen said, you may "ruin yourself in black satin ribbon with a proper perle edge." Iron on embroidery transfers are included, as well as suggestions for using the pattern pieces in alternate ways to create almost any Regency garment.
Riding Habit: Uses the shaped skirt with train and crossover bodice, omitting sleeves and binding off armscyes. Make the Spencer with oversleeves and peplum. Trim with braidwork and buttons Wool is appropriate. Attach a loop inside left hem side seam to assist in carrying the skirt. Make your chemisette of white cotton or linen with a self-fabric ruffle at the neck. Tally Ho!
Evening Dress: Underskirt cut from a shaped skirt pattern. overskirt cut from the round gown skirt (use a very light weight fabric), cutting curve in front lower edges. Add lace or self fabric flounce around skirt edges. Crossover bodice and gathered short sleeve, bound off at edges. Insert of sheer fabric on bodice. The overskirt and bodice are trimmed with embroidery.
Afternoon Dress: Shaped skirt, crossover bodice with insert at center front; long sleeves. This dress is a perfect choice for embroidery. Motifs are worked about 3" up from hem, and up the front. Cut a square of fabric, to be used folded into a triangle as a fichu' over the shoulders. This can be embroidered as well. A ribbon is tied around the waist. This is a good basic style for primed cottons, lightweight challis and silk. Works well with the chemisette.
Dress & Pelisse:
Dress:
Either skirt may be used and trimmed with wide lace or self-fabric flounces. Drop-front bodice worn with chemisette with neck ruffle. Very light to medium-weight fabrics. Pelisse: An outdoor garment, sleeved or with moles only, of any material, to be worn over the dress. It differed from a coat in that it had no lapels. It was sometimes without fastenings; sometimes made to button across the bosom; sometimes to button all down the front. The pelisse is made by using the round gown skirt split open on center front line, lined with a compatible fabric. This lining is embroidered just inside m show charmingly as you walk and sit. The skirt is gathered on to the Spencer. The drop collar is cut from lining fabric. Cut sleeves extra long to allow for fold-back cuff, attach sleeve raffle to match ruffle on chemisette. Trim is applied around waist and cuffs. Medium-weight fabrics for pelisse, lighter-weight for lining.
Spencer: Upstanding collar, peplum, and over sleeve. Ruffle at neck and sleeve edge. Buckle added to waistband. Velveteen, wool and medium-weight upholstery fabrics.
Ball Gown: Round gown underskirt with densely ruched lace at hem line. Overskirt is round gown skirt cut 6"-I0' above underskirt, determined by width of lace used around hem of the overskirt. The overskirt is bound rather than hemmed before applying lace. Artificial flowers form garlands above hem. Drop-front bodice trimmed with flower buds and lace tucker at neckline; use short, gathered sleeves. These are bound off in the same manner as the overskirt. Tres elegant!
Pelerine: Cut from shaped skirt, split up center front (add I 1/2" to each front edge to form overlap to close pelerine. This is gathered onto the Spencer. Long sleeves with over sleeve and drop collar. A buckle finishes the waistband. The pelerine is trimmed with braid work and closed with buttons marching down the front. Small tassels finish the ends of each braid work motif. Purchased frogging could be used. Add braid work to sleeve and over sleeve before sewing up seams. Opulently full neck flounce finished with a soft bow adds a feminine touch to the military look so popular at the time. Add a narrow ruffle to sleeve edges.
Medium-weight wools, silks and upholstery fabrics. Light-weight silk or cotton for lining. This can be worn as a dress, as well as a wrap. Very smart!
Bodice-Petticoat: Make up of medium-weight cotton with a heavier front bodice lining. Flounces of self-fabric or pre-gathered eyelet.
