Titanic Era-Inspired

This skirt was a pair of pants. Came with the “jacket” as a set. Linen. I think the pants were too small, or otherwise not to my liking, so I decided to convert or “upcycle” them into a titanic era inspired skirt. I like the silhouette heading from Edwardian into the 1910s and eventually into the dropped waist twenties. Watch for a video on this upcycle/thrift flip/completed UFO (unfinished object) coming soon to my YouTube channel. Thanks to my sister, Tracey, for the photo.

Martha Corinne

I’m almost done with the mock-up of the dress for the Martha Corinne Walton costume recreation project that’s been in progress for a while. Just need some cuffs and a collar.

Sleeves and collar are done.
An o.k. start with finished, wearable (ie. I’ll keep it and wear it 🙂 )mockup, I think.
Stopping to smell the flowers. Lilac in the air.

Next: start on the plaid fabric version of the dress. Combinations and full length petticoat are done. Also need a brown bonnet, boots, cane, and brooch replica.
