I'm going to replicate the Jump dress from the Titanic*.

I won't be beading the jacket, and I'll only put those black medallions and the fringe on the hem on the front of the dress, to make it more cost-efficient... and besides, the point d'esprit will be covering it anyway.

Here's my drawing. I've already decided to change a few things, but it's close.

Here are my materials for the bodice. Just 1/2 yd red satin, 1/2 yd black tulle and 3/4 yd black Casa Collection lace from Joanns. I'm assembling the bodice first, then I'll line it and work on the skirt, etc. This is going to be more of an ongoing project, just buying materials as I go along.

I'm going to draft/drape the pattern myself, going off of pics of this out-of-print pattern, Simplicity 8399:

and I'll also be basing it off of this Regency pattern I've had for ages, Simplicity 4055:

*Just a note: I haven't seen the Titanic... I am not necessarily recommending it, just talking about the costumes!

Here are my costume study resources for this dress (and where I found the pics):


  1. This makes me so, so happy that you're doing this. The dress is so exquisite. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. I can't wait to see this finished! The dress is amazing.


Hi! I love to hear from you! Just keep your language respectful (to God and others). :) Thank you!
