Red Striped Regency

AKA, the Caroline Bingley. I haven’t been particularly interested in Regency styles in the past, but I got a bee in my bonnet to make one. I couldn’t bring myself do a frilly, girlish white gown, however. I wanted a gown that one of the bitchiest girls in all of Jane Austen’s works would wear. I found the perfect red and gold striped silk from Renaissance Fabrics and I think it really fits the bill! I wore it with a turban because they are fabulous and glamorous, but also because it was an easy way to cover my short modern hair. I’m also wearing a long-line Regency corset underneath. Regency has definitely grown on me! Unlike Caroline Bingley, however, I’m pretty sure I was nice to everyone the day I wore it!
