2011 Jane Austen Festival Australia will Hold a Costume Competition

It's not too early to plan for a Competition for costumes from the Regency Era (1795-1830 England)

The 2011 Jane Austen Festival Australia will be holding this costuming competition, which is open for everyone to enter. The four categories include:
  • Women's Outfit
  • Gentleman's Outfit
  • Regimental Outfit
  • Children's Outfit
Categories in the competition will cover three ability levels (Beginner, Improver and Experienced).

Each winner in each category will receive a season ticket to the Jane Austen Festival, plus a special "award winner" icon to place on their website or blog.

You must keep good records of what you've done and what you've learnt in a "Dress Diary", which will be considered alongside the final outfit. For details, please join the JAFA Costume Competition Google Group if you plan to enter so we have an idea of how many will be entering and can keep you updated on any changes. For more details click on the Jane Austen Festival, April , 2011.

A great resource for patterns is Sense and Sensibility Patterns. The site has been revamped, but the patterns are still available!
