Snowshill Regency Gown



Machine Embroidery Pattern for Snowshill Regency Gown.

SKU: RR117 Category:


This design is based on a Regency gown that is part of the Snowshill Wade Costume Collection, National Trust, 1349106.  The original gown is sheer muslin, embroidered with silk thread, silver passing thread, and fine silver plate.

The designs for this gown have been drawn from detailed photos of the original gown not available to the general public. The designs include borders for the hem, neckline, and sleeves as well as a motif for the center of the puffed sleeves. A sketch of the original gown can be seen in the second photo. These designs can be adapted to any gown with straight hems and a relatively square neckline. Suggestions for adapting a pattern to match the original gown have been provided. Please Note: a pattern for the gown itself is not included. 

The original design has been copied as faithfully as possible, including the slight variances in size, shape, and symmetry inherent in hand work. The metal thread work has been converted into machine embroidery in two different textures to reproduce the effect of the original design. 

We make every effort to ensure that our machine embroidery designs evoke period hand embroidery techniques, and are well-researched so you can use them with confidence on your historical costuming projects. They may copy the wobbles or slight flaws in an original design, to help keep them from looking too perfect and modern. They may contain details that you are not used to seeing in modern machine embroidery designs, such as more color changes or jump stitches between areas. All our files are accompanied by a detailed description of the original design as well as stitching instructions and thread recommendations so you can get the most out of these designs.

You will receive a detailed PDF along with the digital files needed to stitch out this design on a wide variety of embroidery machines. The PDF includes a detailed description of the original gown, color changes, embroidery instructions, and full color designs.
