The distinctive style of the Regency period is a source of endless fascination for fashion academics, historians, re-enactors and costume designers for stage and screen. In this important book, author and fashion historian Cassidy Percoco has delved into little-known museum hoards to create a stunning collection of 20 garments that have never before been published. Most of the garments have an aspect in their construction that has not been previously documented, from a design for petticoat quilting to the shape of a jacket peplum. This practical guide also gives a general history of 19th-century women's dress and a description of construction techniques used by seamstresses of the period.
