Sense and Sensibility's England Costuming Tour 2009

Sarah had the wonderful opportunity to go to England on a tour specifically for observing and studying period costume.
The ladies spent some of their time in period costume themselves. Here is Sarah looking just lovely in her regency gowns.
And the scenery is breath-taking!

A golden regency gown with 3/4 sleeves. Sarah added a lovely fringed shawl to complete the look.

A regency gown with bright floral print on a creamy background with short, puffed sleeves.

An ivory gown with a light brown pelisse. The long sleeves of the Regency Era were very long.

A white voile regency gown over a pale green lining.

This gown Sarah made herself from a deep burgundy and gold Indian sari print fabric.
