Hedges8: Historical and fantasy garments... fancy an Austen-inspired tea party?

Ok, I confess it. I love "Love and Prejudice" and yes I have an obsession with men with cravats and sideburns, like almost every girl in the world... sigh! And I watch Regency and Period dramas inspired in Jane Austen´s novels, including some silly spin-offs like "Austenland" and "Lost in Austen".

To be true, I love the way men used to wear in the Regency Era. Even if I think that women clothing was not so up to the elegance of the gentlemen in this aspect,  I find the whole period very romantic, for obvious reasons. Oh I certainly would like to see my partner in these garments.

So making a little random search I found this really lovely and adorable store in etsy called HEDGES8. The prices are really affordable and if you plan to make a special  tea-party of if you want to represent a theatre play, this is a rather sweet and I repeat, affordable option to look at. And surprisingly the store is based not in the UK but in USA! :)

As items are hand-made obviously most of them are one of a kind but they also encourage commissions and custom orders.

There are plenty of Regency sewing patterns available in ebay for Regency costumes, but if you don't happen to be good at couture work, I found the store a good option.  They also have some lovely prince-charming/princess medieval/fantasy gowns that I bookmarked as well, though I will keep this entry highlighted for their Regency catalogue.

Fine ladies... and gentlemen. Below gowns, coat and poet blouse-shirt by HEDGES8 .

You could  then complete your look also adding a few regency complements like parasols, hats and even teapots from the UK-based store Austen´s gift shop.
