Regency Site?

Postby kellydofc » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:17 pm

Not sure if I am putting this in the correct forum but I am looking for a board on regency fashion. I have been told that there are examples of sleeveless gowns during the regency period and wanted to do some followup research but am coming up short. Could someone recommend a board where the members could help me with this?

Have you tried the Sense and Sensibility web site, http://sensibility.com/

They have a forum, however it is only viewable to members, so I can't say what's on it.

Below is a link to photos which appear to include "sleeveless" gowns found on Jessamyn's Regency site.

I could not find an active regency forum.

In the book Mrs. Hurst Dancing: And Other Scenes from Regency Life, 1812-23 a number of the illustrations show what look like jumpers. Also the riding habits I've seen documented consisted of jackets/spencers over a sleeveless bodice to which the skirt was attached. http://www.amazon.com/Mrs-Hurst-Dancing-Regency-1812-23/dp/0575030356/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1307753323&sr=8-2

The Regency Society of America boards are here: http://regencysa.proboards.com/index.cgi?

We have lots of pictures in the 'inspiration' posts stickied to the top of all the costuming boards.
