Flying Dress

It’s not my first costume (but my first “Titanic” costume), but it’s one of the costumes I’ve worked the most on (sorry if my English is not good). I used the Simplicity retro pattern, and I altered it for the skirt (moved edge from right side to front right) and shortened the sleeves (way too long in original pattern).

Eva’s Titanic Tea Gown – “Rose”

Eva in her exquisite reproduction, on board the Queen Mary.

I made this reproduction of Rose’s tea gown for the 100th anniversary of Titanic. It was quite the adventure finding all the right laces… seven different types in total. I found large appliques to create the long points with, about 30 in total. I had to trim them to the right shape and back them each with tulle, so they had the correct weight and movement in the wind. I am such a perfectionist, they had to match the way they flutter in the movie when Rose turns around. I also made a version of Rose’s “long line” Edwardian corset to wear underneath the gown, to acheive the correct silhouette. Read more…

This is Jennifer Rouch’s version of the tea gown. Writes Jennifer, “My tea dress was a less accurate version as far as budget was concerned. Instead of using guipure lace I used a wide antique looking less expensive lace. The green matte satin was a dead on match of the movie dress, and I used […] Read more…
