The design I started with was 1912 and I kept wrinkling up my nose each time I sketched different designs. I will confess that my favorite is the Janet Arnold 1909-10 evening dress in black silk net over a ivory satin under garment. But, that is for a very small busted person who slim. Me? Well, let's just say that is not my figure. Sigh. But! My choice of design will work well and will - though not period to the Titanic - look more fashion forward for an uppty minx like me. LOL!
Here is my preliminary design:
I am planning to use the brocade for the over dress and no sleeves at all. The under dress (skirt) will be velvet. I have a burn out velvet for the straps.
I hope to give you all an update soon. Cheers
