Simplicity Pattern 8161 Misses' 18th Century Costumes is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pattern from a great costumer! It went together well and the instructions were very clear! Lauren of American Duchess has already said this pattern is not 100% accurate because Simplicity wanted it made with the casual costumer and layperson in mind. That said, she has provided free hacks to make it more historically accurate for those who care. I don't mind it being inaccurate right out of the envelope because I modify everything anyway to suit my needs As for sizing, I think it helps to have a friend help you measure and to measure over the correct undergarments for the most accurate look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think this is a great pattern! I am relatively new to costuming but have been making many historical gowns. This is the third Georgian era pattern I have made and the easiest of the three. Some of the reviews said it was not historically accurate. I always modify my patterns anyway so that doesn't bother me a bit. In addition to making the gown, I made another bodice and added a peplum to wear with jeans. It's adorable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to follow I have now made the Italian gown and petticoat. I love them both.They were easy to follow and went together beautifully. I even sitched them by hand and made eyelet and not grommet lacing. American Duchess had made some hacks to make it more historical,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to any wardrobe Starred just before x-mas 2016 and have completed one full costume and now on my second. A great feeling wearing it, it takes you to another time and place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pattern This pattern is fantastic. Yes, it's not 100% historically accurate, but for beginners it's a really good place to start, and for more experienced people it can be modified easily enough. I had no issues with the fitting of it, and it's a relatively simple gown to make. I really loved making it, and love wearing it even more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from some flaws Sleeves were super tight like the chemise ones. Overall fit is not that great. It didn't end up looking like the photo. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nope 1st error on the design is that it Is NOT historically accurate and 2nd problem is that the overall fit was really tight despite cutting the appropriate size, wearing the stay and bumpad that the designer provides. Definitely not worth the time and money. I dont know how American Duchess can say this is historically accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good pattern I was little hesitant how this would work, but it was excellent! Easy to follow even to not-native english speaker, because the pictures were great. Good patterns, and easy to modify how you would like them.
