1812 Regency French Fashion Plate
- Apr 15, 2018
This pale spring green gingham dress (well, at least I think it's gingham) is Regency period from France. Many of the best dressmakers were French and the social elite would look at fashion plates to get ideas for new styles. The not so social elite would gather inspiration from these fashion plates and sew the dresses themselves.

Go for a maxi length dress or skirt in a gingham print and pair with a blouse with puff sleeves. Finish off with flats with criss cross straps.
