This 1910s Tea Gown pattern was inspired by “Titanic” and follows the styles of 1911-1913 with its multi-layered skirt and kimono-style bodice.

This pattern is rated advanced intermediate mainly because of the extra steps involved in tailoring the bodice for a perfect fit and because of all the skirt layers. I am always available to answer questions through the Contact Form if you need help! Note: While all sizes are included, if you wear a “DD” cup, you will need to purchase the supplement to get a perfect fit.

Note: If you purchased a copy of this pattern prior to February 2, 2010, click here for corrections.

  1. Hello!I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with the new look of your website! Also, that dress is gorgeous! I know that when I am able to sew well enough to make something like that you can expect my business!

  2. Oh I am going to get this pattern! My absolute favorite Edwardian dress. And the new look to the site looks great Mrs. Chancey. I love all the new patterns added as well.

  3. I’ve just started sewing and I can’t wait until I can sew a dress like this! you can be sure that i will use you business in the future! you Love of historical clothing is refreshing. I have been looking for a website like this for what feels like forever! Thank you.

  4. Is there any way you could size this down to a size 8 girls (e.g. not juniors) for me? I think I can sew well enough to follow the pattern, but I have no idea how to scale a pattern down to a different size. My diminutive 9-year-old is fixated on Titanic history, memorabilia, the movie, etc., at present and I would very much like to give her a “Rose” dress for Christmas to go with the Titanic Rose Barbie she is hoping for. Thanks very much!

  5. I absolutly LOVE this dress!! Ive been sewing for almost 2 years. could you tell me how hard this pattern is to follow. And where did you purchace your fabric. Thanks 🙂 E

    • Hi, Elisabeth! This is definitely an intermediate pattern due to all the layering and the unique fit of the bodice, but if you’ve been sewing two years, you could tackle it. I also have an online class for this pattern if you’d like a little more “hand-holding” through the steps. 🙂 The material for my blue gown is chiffon; for the pink and light blue version, it’s silk georgette. Either fabric works great for this pattern (with a solid silk or cotton as the skirt lining). Hope this helps!

  6. That dress is absolutely gorgeous! I would love to make it but if it’s an intermediate pattern I would probably need help from my mum.
    Do you ship to Europe? How long does that usually take and have you ever had any issues with it? I would love to wear that dress for my uni graduation in June

    • Hi, Sabrina! We do ship to Europe via air mail (if you put the pattern into your cart, then enter your address, it will tell you the total with air mail shipping). However, there are also retailers in the UK, Sweden, and the Netherlands who carry my patterns, so you might want to see if you can purchase from someone closer to you and save on shipping. Hope this helps!

  7. Thank you very much for your quick reply! Unfortunately the retailer here seem to be out of it and I am worried to order it from the US. I need it for early May as otherwise I won’t have anyone to help me with it.
    I think I will go with the e-pattern and print it myself. The dress is so gorgeous, I am looking forward to wearing it

    • H, Nicoleta! Pattern sizes are not the same as off-the-rack sizes, so be sure to check the measurement chart and go by measurements instead of size. A pattern size 6 is closer to a 2 off-the-rack. Hope this helps!

  8. Hello,
    I’m wanting to make Rose’s Swim Dress from Titanic. I purchased the Pattern “Simplicity 8399”, which contains the pattern for both the Swim and Jump Dress.
    Is the pattern your offering different from this pattern? If so, is there a significant difference?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Hi, Jonathan. I didn’t design Simplicity’s costume pattern. Mine has a more structured bodice and more skirt layers and was inspired by original kimono-sleeved tea gowns of the time period that happened to look close to what “Rose” wears in the film. Hope this helps!

  9. I love this style of gown but i would love to make it period correct. Is there a way to do this without an invisible zipper? Or would it smash the back design of the pattern?
