Regencycore: Bridgerton-inspired looks for modern day!


Dear Reader,

We think this collection of Copper Creek Patterns will inspire your Regencycore fantasies. What's Regencycore? Regencycore is a trend that has swept through the fashion world, bringing with it a touch of historical elegance and romance. This style draws inspiration from the Regency Era, a period in early 19th century England known for its distinctive fashion, architecture, and art. Think lace, florals, pearl accents, and dramatic colors.

Recently, Regencycore has gained significant popularity, thanks in large part to the hit Netflix series Bridgerton. If you're captivated by the elegant attire and lavish settings of this period drama, you'll love these Copper Creek pattern highlights! 

For each pattern, we'll explain the pattern options, fabric choices, and additional accessories you can add that will make you the Diamond of the Season and the talk of the Ton! We'll also feature a few tutorials that will sharpen your skills. 

Sincerely, Lady W - aka, The Copper Creek Pattern Crew

Maybe you like something a bit more dramatic? Elegant? Wowza?!
