Item details

Inspired by gowns worn during the Edwardian period, this gown is a perfect choice for an afternoon stroll on the decks of the Titanic, or wandering the gardens of Downton Abbey. Videos with special instructions on how to complete perfect pleats and tucks are also included to easily achieve the vintage look.

View A: The slim silhouette of the under-dress is set off by the peplum attached “jacket”. It is all one piece, but has the look of an overcoat, with contrasting cuffs, collar, and waistband.

View B: This elegant version looks best with a brocade or textured fabric for the “jacket”. The peplum and bodice are accented with decorative trim. The inset skirt and bodice panel showcase a wide pin-tuck, and the skirt is edged with a pleated ruffle.

View C: The peplum in this version is edged with piping and a ruffle. It has a contrast bow and waistband made from the same fabric as the piping. The sleeve is also edged with piping and a ruffle.

This pattern is for the gowns only. To complete the ensemble, the following patterns are available:
Heirloom Hat
Parasol: and
Parasol Kit:
