VintiqueDesigns is pleased to present our classic Regency dress set! The set includes our very own original design square neck Regency dress, an underdress, a pair of pin-tucked pantalettes with drawstring closure, and an apron - made from a vintage, handstitched fingertip towel in a beautiful White vintage Linen with pale Blue embroidery!

We've used a beautiful Cornflower Blue Imperial Batiste fabric for the dress - and added our unique touches of vintage lace and trims!

The dress features our classic square neck design, full, puffed sleeves on a band with a tiny trim of vintage Bobbin laceas well as a row of vintage tatting lace; Empire waist and rounded, slim skirt, with vintage tatting trim accent. It closes in the back with two hidden metal snaps. The dress bodice is fully self-fabric lined, and the skirt is lined with White Batiste so the it can be worn without the Apron & underdress, if desired. The hem is handstitched.

The Apron is a design we created in doll size - an exact replica of the apron worn by Emma Thompson in "Sense and Sensibility" - our favorite Jane Austen flick! It is made from a vintage handstitched cotton fingertip towel in a lovely White & Cornflower Blue. The handstitching features delicate scrolls, leaves, and flower in Blue, with drawnthread work across the bottm hem. The small bib, narrow straps and narrow waistband are sewn exactly as the movie design, and the waistband closes in the back with a single hidden metal snap and faux button. According to the Historical information we have seen, this Apron would have been reserved for a "special occasion" and was often referred to as a "party apron."

The Pantalettes are made of pure White cotton Batiste, and features a "old fashioned" drawstring waist & cord closure - in the authentic Historical style! The cut of the Pantalettes is slightly narrower than most, to work with the design of the slimmer fitting Regency dresses. Each leg of the pantalettes ends in three tiny pin-tucks and a row of scalloped Lace.

Our squareneck underdress is also made of cotton Batiste, and we began making these to be worn under some of the more sheer Regency dresses. It features a slim cut and fit and doesn't add a lot of bulk under the slimmer dresses. It closes in the back with two small snaps, and also has a hand-stitched hem.

This set has been fitted to our Emily doll and will also fit the chunkier pre-Mattel dolls.

VintiqueDesigns uses pre-laundered fabrics to prevent staining and shrinking. All seams are finished professionally on a serger.
