Flying Dress

It’s not my first costume (but my first “Titanic” costume), but it’s one of the costumes I’ve worked the most on (sorry if my English is not good).

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 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.

Well, our Internet went out last weekend and has been spotty this week, so I haven't had a chance to share the finishing of the dress until now. Your comments were all so helpful on the skirt options, and it was hard to decide how to arrange the overskirt, but I ended up going for expediency, as my deadline was fast approaching. Read more…
