Jennie Chancey has been sewing since she was a youngster and designing historical patterns since 1996, when she founded Sense & Sensibility Patterns.. Her original Regency Gown Pattern, published in 1998, continues to be a bestseller around the world, and Jennie has expanded to include six other Regency Era patterns, plus patterns from the Georgian, Edwardian, and Titanic eras, the 1940s and 1950s. Since 2009, Jennie has taken groups of fellow historical fashion and Jane Austen enthusiasts to visit stately homes, museums, and costume collections in England, always including a costumed outing at the famed Jane Austen Festival in Bath. Jennie is thrilled to be part of the first Jane Austen Festival in Mt. Dora and looks forward to visiting with her fellow Janeites.
