Fashion of the Regency Era

In connection with Austenprose's Pride and Prejudice Without Zombies Read-A-Thon, Vic from Jane Austen World, has contributed an article on elegant apparel of the Regency Era and discusses the ball gowns worn in the three adaptations of Pride and Prejudice: 1980's version with Elizabeth Garvie, the A&E production with Jennifer Ehle, and the most recent film with Keira Knightley. It is excellent and a must read for anyone interested in Regency fashion.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this article, Mary! I thought I knew a great deal about Regency fashion, but I learned so many new and amazing things. The smallest details spoke volumes! I so love the Regency era! I think I'll see the Netherfield ball in a completely different light from now on.
