Extant Titanic-Era Garments

By Jennie Chancey

I costumed a new Titanic documentary, titled “Women and Children First,” in April of 1998. Here are two of the extras used in the filming (the one on the left is yours truly, complete with vintage glasses!). The dress on the right is straight out of a 1912 ladies’ catalog and features beautiful draping and inset details. The outfit on the right was made up of a walking skirt and fantastic jacket with braided trimming.
