    #138 Ladies’ Back Closing Regency Gown with three neck options and five sleeve options.
    There are instructions if the maker wishes to change the neckline to
    one of their own design. Views A and B use a short sleeve with
    optional cutouts. View A uses the cutout short sleeve with either a
    ribbon made from fabric, or a purchased ribbon, woven through the
    cutouts. View B has gathered puffs protruding from the cutouts
    resembling slash and puff (or pouf) Renaissance style sleeves.
    View C uses a double layer petal edge short sleeve, with both layers
    having a faced edge. View D uses the short sleeve without cutouts
    paired with the long sleeve which can be layered either over or
    under the short sleeve. The long sleeve can be gathered in at the
    wrist alone or at several places on the arm. The gown has a separate belt which can
    be omitted or replaced with a purchased ribbon sash. The skirt has front, side back,
    and back pieces. The back of the skirt attaches to the bodice with 6 pleats on each
    side, with the center 2 pleats forming a box pleat. The skirt is the same length all the
    way around. The bodice in all views is formed with a front, side, and back pieces.
    The back of the bodice can close with an overlap, or as in some period examples, can
    close so that the center backs just meet. Optional piping can be added to seams, belt,
    and bands, and instructions for creating piping are included. The neckline is finished
    with bias binding, which may or may not be piped as desired. The skirt can be left
    plain or elaborately trimmed. There are also instructions for finishing the bottom of
    the hem with wide cording if desired. There are yardages and instructions for the
    two types of skirt trim shown on View C and D, both petal (zig zag) and scalloped
    trim. Fabric: Cotton, Linen, Wool, or Silk. Drapey fabric is not recommended.
    Plain, figured, striped, checked, velvet or velveteen. Thick fabric will complicate the
    double sleeves. Lining: Cotton muslin. The skirt is not lined. Interfacing: Hair
    canvas or medium linen. Notions: Plain cotton kitchen twine for piping, or piping
    can be bought premade. Cording for the bottom of the skirt—4 Yards of 3/8 inch
    Cotton Filler Cord. Ribbon trim for View B Sleeves-4 yards of 1” wide ribbon or
    1/2 yard fabric. Closures: Buttons, hooks and eyes, or ribbon or tape bows as desired.
    Note: The sleeves for this pattern are interchangeable with the sleeves of
    LMM #137 and vice versa. Scallop skirt trim should be made with fabric that does
    not fray easily and does not have a right and wrong side.

    add a version for 1800-1810 June 2, 2018
    Reviewer: Victor Eiser from Stowe, VT United States  
    In the early 1st Empire, the gowns were mucjh lower cut in the bodice (to show more décolletage ).   After the French Revolution décolletage become larger in the front and less in the back. During the fashions of the period 1800–1810, many women wore dresses which bared the most of the bosom.  Could you add a pattern suitable for this period, or a version of 138 that is lower cut ?

    Patterns always a pleasure to follow. May 29, 2018
    Reviewer: Debra Scriver, Fashion Under Siege from Sherwood Park, AB Canada  
    I have purchased several LM patterns in the past. The instructions are clearly written and the hand drawn pictures that follow are helpful.  The historic notations are what set these patterns apart from other companies. The research has been done for you. The finished garments have proven very popular with our clients.
