      The second part of “Romantic Recollections” Regency challenge was to add embroidery to the piece I just made. But since I’m a total beginner at embroidery I decided to not risk my new gown but instead make a reticule to decorate. My inspiration. For the design I turned to my book about 18th century Embroidery. We’re always ecstatic when one of our favorite authors is brought to the big screen! We celebrated Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women at Christmas and now it’s time for Jane Austen’s Emma.. Jane Austen wrote stories and poems to amuse herself and her family from a young age and eventually compiled 29 of them into three bound notebooks.

    Reminiscent of the gowns worn in the Regency era, this lovely gown will transport you into the world of Pride and Prejudice or any of Jane Austen s lovely books. Our romantic high-waisted gown has a high neck and long sleeves. The dress features a front covered button closure, and the long sleeves are shirred at the cuff and extended to cover the hand.4/5(1).
