Caroline’s 1910s Tea Gown

By Jennie Chancey


Caroline created her Tea Gown to wear to a wedding. She writes,

Once more I’m sharing my joy with you. It’s done! It’s not perfect, but it’s done. I ended up putting rosettes on the sash in a Dior style–three roses together. Instead of a straight piece, I used a football shape and folded it in half and gathered on the straight side. I just happened to get Roberta Carr’s book on couture from the library and she showed this way. Worked for me. :-) I feel like I’ve painted a masterpiece or something. Thanks for designing a beautiful feminine dress. The wedding is tomorrow, and I’m ready! Anyway, I’m celebrating. This is the most difficult thing I’ve ever made. I learned a lot doing this gown and have gained confidence in myself.

Blessings,
Caroline

Well, if this is what Caroline calls “not perfect,” I look forward to seeing what she makes when she thinks she has done a bang-up job! This is a simply lovely gown, and I know it must have been fun to wear to the wedding!

Share the love!
