Titanic Dress, Take #1

There are some fantastic materials in the stash for making a 1912 gown for the upcoming GBACG event, Last Dinner on the Titanic, including a large panel of antique lace. I'm using Laughing Moon Pattern #104, and because I wanted to be able to do a mockup before cutting into my fancy material, and needed a dress to wear to the Titanic 3D movie screening, I decided to make a wearable mockup.

From the Stash:
  • 4 yards of shot red/black poly taffeta
  • velvet ribbon
  • 2.5 yard long black net curtain panel $5.50
  • 2 embroidered poly organza sashes $2

Half-scale dress form

After discussing half-scale forms with a friend who has one, I decided that it would be nice to have a half-scale dress form with my measurements.  

From the Stash:

  • cotton twill
  • bias tape and zipper
  • poly batting
  • blue camping pad foam
  • shoulder pads
