Why do I love Regency fashion?
Well, for starters, I love the tight trousers/breeches Regency men wore.
You see what I mean.
But a lady in this time period also had some lovely clothing options. For one thing, unlike her mother or grandmother before her, she did not have to be sewn into her fabulous Georgian gown by a lady's maid (remember the scene with Madame de Meruruille in Dangerious Liasons?
Even when she went dancing with the Prince Regent, her silk gown would be elegant, but not necessarily elaborate.
And no corsets! Ladies of the Regency period wore stays, of course, but they did not have to be crushed in a vise to fit into their gowns. Progress indeed.
Christy English is happiest when she is dreaming. Her dreams have taken her to the royal court of Henry II in THE QUEEN’S PAWN, to medieval Paris in TO BE QUEEN, and now to Regency England in MUCH ADO ABOUT JACK, LOVE ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT, and HOW TO TAME A WILFULL WIFE, where she loves to watch her characters find true love, often in spite of themselves.
