1910s Tea Gown for a Special Trip

By Jennie Chancey

I came across this pretty blush silk on clearance at a local fabric store and bought it, not sure what I wanted to do with it until my husband and I decided to take a cruise to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Immediately, I decided to make a tea gown for one of the two formal nights. I headed in to find lace and lucked out on the last bit of a bolt that was just enough for this gown.

I felt very feminine and lady-like in this dress and recieved several compliments during the formal evening. It’s become one of my favorite dresses for ‘dress-up’ events. Thank you for such a lovely pattern!

Lovely, lovely work, Karen! I love your fabric and color choices. You look queenly!

Share the love!

    Love your dress! The colors are beautiful! It puts me in the mood to go visit the Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri!

    I love the design, and I saw the “helping discussion on how-to detail this sewing project”.

    The dress is beautifully shown on the cruise!

    Is the pattern for sale? called “tea gown”.
