My Titanic replica dress was inspired by styles of 1910. Ever since I learned heirloom stitching I have been in love with the designs of this era. This was my inspiration photo.
First I draped my fabric on a dress form to get a feel for the design. These are mostly just rectangle pieces pinned to the form.
Then I cut out my exact pieces closer to my style. It was a Friday night and it seemed to be just what I wanted to do.
Once I cut my pieces and started making my dress I noticed it was hard to see all the details with black on black. I created a simple tube slip to wear under this dress.
Behind the scenes-This is me in the dress just after creating this dress. I had not made the white slip yet.
