Titanic Breakfast Gowns

By Jennie Chancey

Christina created this very romantic, feminine version of the breakfast gown, complete with all the rosebuds and ribbons. Dreamy!


Here is a beautiful breakfast gown made by Jennifer LaConte of J. LaConte Designs. She used a patterned lace for the overdress, which is completely detachable, as you can see.


Jennifer Cech made this beautiful Breakfast Gown for the state fair and won a blue ribbon for it. In addition to “Titanic” recreations, Jennifer also makes beautiful heirloom clothing for children, which you can see on her website, La Petite Trousseau!


Elissa made this beautiful version of the breakfast gown and is happy to share information on how she did it if you e-mail her at RoseD3698@aol.com.


Another lovely Breakfast Gown by Jennifer Cech! This one she made for her daughter, who looks so cute in it!


Jennifer Cech of La Petite Trousseau also made this “Titanic”-inspired kimono for a client. Dreamy!

Share the love!

      I’m afraid I haven’t heard from Jennifer in years, Ariel, so I assume she is no longer in business. She did beautiful work!

      I contacted Jennifer years ago and she told me she wasn’t taking orders anymore because she didn’t have time. I’m talking to another seamstress right now about the breakfast gown. I sew, but also don’t have a whole lot of time for luxury projects I don’t have a place to wear!

    I have never commented here before, but I love the site! I am planning on making the “Flying Dress”.I have had some difficulty in securing the pattern from Simplicity,so here is a comment or suggestion that I would like to offer.(I will be trying it, myself!)The outfit,dress,looks like it is immatating a skirt,jacket and top.SO,I think: why not reverse the order and create it out of a skirt,jacket and top patterns!? Some alterations will be needed, of course, but I think that it would be alot easier to get in and out of, also, and probably more comfortable.IT will be three seperate pieces. I do wish that people dressed up more, now.We are way too casual as a society! My opinion.

      Hi, Bobbi B! That does actually work, but (believe it or not!), you can also create the “flying” dress from my 1910s Tea Gown pattern. All you do is lengthen the sleeves to the wrist, then add the lapels and a short skirt layer out of the bodice velvet to mimic the lower edge of the bodice (the seam at the waist is hidden by the sash. The skirt only needs two layers — one skirt (no split overskirt) and lining. A friend of mine did this for the Titanic 100 in Missouri, and it looked stunning! Have fun sewing!
