Buy a ready-made costume
This is probably the most expensive, but easiest way to go. There are quite a lot of places that do sell regency costumes, however make sure the costume is accurate for the time period, as not all sellers have a precise knowledge of the Regency style.

The Jane Austen Festival Fayre runs on the first Saturday of the Festival, opening in the Guildhall Banqueting Hall as the Promenade finishes. Most of the Costume suppliers listed on this page attend the Fayre. It is a great opportunity to pick up those last few Regency accessories needed for the week of events to come. And also a good time to chat and discuss future costume wishes with these talented people.
