Becky’s 1910s Tea Gown


Becky's 1910s Tea Gown | Sense & Sensibility Patterns

Our county fair is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year. There are many special centennial classes plus a heritage day to dress up in a period costume form the last 100 years. Combined with my children’s homeschool formal and some beautiful taffeta on clearance provided me with a great excuse to make a 1910s Tea Gown as a formal gown. Read more…

Eva’s Titanic Tea Gown – “Rose”

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…

Rachel’s “Music Man” Costume

We needed an era-appropriate dress for “The Music Man” Junior musical, which takes place during the summer of 1912. Thankfully, we discovered the 1910s Tea Gown.

I’m tickled that several school productions have used this […] Read more…

Katrina’s Stunning 1910s Tea Gown


1910s Tea Gown with sash

I loved using the tea gown pattern, and after years of admiring the design, I finally decided to cut it out (using some of my favorite fabrics) when my mother and I were watching “Pride & Prejudice” one afternoon.  The ivory silk shantung had a lovely satin finish on the back which I used on the outside of the dress, and the embroidered tulle has been in my “stash” for some time.  I always knew I wanted to make a gown out of it, and I’m so glad I finally did! Read more…

Marlene’s 1910s Tea Gowns



Here are two of my latest creations–gowns created from Mrs. Chancey’s lovely pattern! Being as I’ve been in an ‘Edwardian Fashion Craze’ for the last couple of months, I decided to buy the pattern and make the dress for a yearly dance we have at my parish. The dress I wore is the yellow-colored one–my […] Read more…

1910s Tea Gown Class


Tea Gown close-up

This 1910s Tea Gown class is six lessons long and is for those who already have a good bit of sewing experience. If you are at an intermediate level (or have completed the Regency Gown Class), you will be able to tackle the Tea Gown. This pattern requires more careful fitting, and if you make the full dress in all its glory, you’ll be creating multiple skirt layers and working with more difficult fabrics, like chiffon or silk.
