My Fave 5 Friday – Regency Costume Pins

Happy Friday, Everyone! It’s finally the end of the work week, and time to share 5 of my favorites. Let me just say that I love Pinterest. I am on it daily, and finds tons of visual inspiration. So, this week, I will be sharing my 5 most favorite Regency Costume Pins.

#5 – A lovely Travel Dress

I tend to lean more toward the understated dresses, and this fits the bill perfectly. This is one that I wouldn’t mind having in my Regency wardrobe.

#4 – A lovely Spencer reproduction

This is a beautiful reproduction of the Queen Louise of Prussia Spencer. I have always loved the red, white, and blue combination, and this Spencer is just the right amount of each. I love how the white dress shows it off to perfect advantage.

#3 – A lovely drop front dress

Another simplistic, but very lovely dress. This one even has the pintucks on the drop front that I have yet to attempt to make. This is another dress that I could easily see in my Regency wardrobe. Hmmmm….. I may have to start shopping for fabric. I think this dress in a lovely, dark green would suit me well.

#2 – A lovely evening dress

This is such a lovely dress with a very unique sleeve feature. I love the fabric print, and how she used it to accentuate the design features of the dress. And, if I correct, I have even seen this dress on the cover of a Regency romance novel. 😉

And we have come to……

#1 – Green and Gold combination

This costume is just all kinds of loveliness! I love the colors. The green works so well with the gold. I love the leaf embroidered trim on the Spencer, and the hat and chemisette just pulls it all together. I am just in love with this costume!
