|1911, the Met|
The first "big" costume of 2012 for me, as for many of you, is the 1912 Titanic Centennial gown. If you are a member of the Facebook group "The Unsinkables," you know we've been posting images likes crazy. (Join The Unsinkables if you haven't already!).
I want to share with you some of my favorite inspiration gowns that are influencing my design. My color scheme is purple, as I've already found a gorgeous plum-colored beaded net. It's time to decide on a design...
|From Vogue, April 1912. I like the simplicity of this, and it really shows off the overlay|
|Plaza Gown Parlors, evening gown, 1911-12.|
|Callot Sœurs (France, Paris, circa 1890 - circa 1950) Woman's Evening Dress, circa 1912|
|French evening dress, 1910.|
|Herbert Luey, evening dress, 1912.|
|Callot Soeurs | c. 1910-14 . One of my most favorite gowns of all time|
|Love the Indian fabrics on this. Me netting is a bit Indian-inspired, something like this might work.|
|1912 evening gown, Brooklyn Museum. Another of my most adored.|
|Lina Cavaliere, 1910s|
|Janet Arnold's "Laurel Dress" pattern.|
