Regency Weekend outfits

In October I attended a private Regency "couples" Weekend in Baltimore.  I had long wanted to make the Queen Louise of Prussia spencer, so I did that paired with a bib front day dress out of Swiss dot, and a cranberry velvet bonnet and matching reticule.

(worn again to a Regency tea later in the Fall)

I also made a court dress and train.  Dress is a lovely pre-embellished bridal fabric:

 Hem of fabric was scalloped, embroidered and beaded.  That was lucky!!

My husband had nothing to wear, so I made him a shirt, vest, and wool tailcoat

Pants from Gentleman's Emporium and boots from
