This listing is for a stunning regency ball gown. Ideal for regency re-enactment, Jane Austen and Napolionic events, regency themed weddings, historical dance groups and costumes parties.

Now I can just imagine Empress Josephine holding court in this little number. I was inspired by the wonderful painting in the last picture that dates to approx 1815-20 and as soon as I came accross the pretty golden indian trim I knew I had to recreate this regal gown.

Made in a stunning two tone wine taffeta that catches the light beautifully. The gown is cut in classic regency style with a low scooped neckline and gathering at the under bust. The bodice is self lined and has short puffed sleeves and a full length skirt with gathering focused at the back waist creating the iconic regency look dipping slightly longer at the back into a short demi train. The dress fastens with handmade fabric covered buttons. The neckline and empire waist are trimmed by hand with a beautiful narrow indian braid trim woven with gold metalic threads in a paisley design giving this gown a real classical inspired look so fashionable at the time. This gown is a wonderful example of how the simplicity of regency styling allows the fabrics and simple trims speak for themselves without the excessive fuss and frills of previous and later decades.
