Eva’s Titanic Tea Gown – “Rose”

by

Eva in her exquisite reproduction, on board the Queen Mary.

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…

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 […] Read more…

1910s Tea Gown Class

by

Tea Gown close-up

This 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.
