I will admit I'm not a big fan of the Regency, on me. I love it on others - Maggie of Undressing the Historical Lady does it superbly, and all the photos from Bath and Malmaison have me drooling. I believe that *all* periods will work for *all* ladies, we just have to find what suits us in those periods (just like today). So here are some inspiration images of Regency ensembles I actually like...
|Carriage Costume, 1817|
|Winter, 1814 - oh, the fur! and those funny little shoes!|
|Habit Spencer, Queen Louise of Prussia|
|Amalie Auguste, Princess of Bavaria and Queen of Saxony - by Joseph Karl Stieler, 1823 - a bit late, but could be reverse-Regencied to fit an earlier style|
|La Belle Assemblee, 1818|
|Museo del Traje, spencer, 1800|
|The Met, spencer, 1805-15|
