Edwardian Titanic 1912 Dress with Jet Beads and Large Hat LARGE SIZE READY TO SHIP NOW

This stunning Edwardian gown ca. 1912 is a Reproduction of an Edwardian dress from the book entitled, "Les Petites Dames De Mode" by John Burbidge. Burbidge's color palette for this gown was inspired by the race scene from "My Fair Lady." (see photo below at bottom).

DRESS: Made of a soft ivory Bengaline Faille material, this dress features authentic 1890s black jet beaded appliques on the bretelles. Is a traditional gored skirt of ivory Bengaline, with each panel being lined in cotton. The wide bretelles are of the same fabric and backed with a wider band of black. The authentic Jet beaded appliques have been hand sewn onto these. Since these Jet appliques are authentic, I carefully removed the original black ground net since it was weak in places and replaced it with a new black net. The bottom of the skirt has two rows of black grosgrain ribbon and large ivory Venice appliques hand sewn above and below the ribbon. A black cording has been interlaced through the appliques, and a small beaded floral applique sits at the top of each.

BLOUSE: The Edwardian blouse is made of an ivory sheer embroidered lace and closes in back. The high neck collar has two rows of vintage black trim, and is topped with a fan sheer lace with black trim. The same lace is also at the cuffs of each sleeve and trimmed with black pessemeterie trim.

EDWARDIAN HAT: The hat base has been covered with an ivory satin, which is gathered on the underside of the brim. The top and crown of the hat are covered in black taffeta and it is trimmed in the front with a wide band of thick, black rooster feathers. A large black taffeta bow is sewn across the front.

BOA: The black boa is actually two thin boas together to give them a thicker look and will be included in this Edwardian ensemble. You'll be certain to look stunning in this dress which is a one-of-a-kind! Always go by the measurements for proper fit. An elegant Edwardian reproduction gown for day wear... don't let this one get away!


This dress is brand new and never worn. A short note on the construction of my dresses... I always try to maintain an accurate representation of whatever period I am reproducing. All of my seams are pinked to prevent unraveling. I never use Velcro, fabric glue or zippers on the garments and proper interfacing is always used in the waistbands and collars to prevent rolling. I also adjust my patterns slightly to allow for more upper arm comfort than original patterns of this period provide. If a fabric easily unravels, I flat line each piece with a zig-zag stitch. US shipping of $22.00. (In two boxes) Buyer pays for priority shipping (based on item's weight and bulk), with insurance and tracking included! All sales are final. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have prior to purchase, and can send more photos upon request. Note: My international shipping rates are very reasonable, with no handling charges but buyers should contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase. Direct paypal or credit cards through paypal are my preferred method of payment.
