Remember the Titanic with Historic Costumes

April 2012 will see the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. To commemorate the event, there will be events held around the world. The Titanic Historical Society is planning many events.

Some events will allow participants to dress in costumes from the period. Simplicity has just re-released a dress pattern that is perfect for making elegant 1912 evening wear. Simplicity 8399 features two lovely versions of a 1912 evening gown and is available in Misses sizes 4-20. The dress can be made with satin or crepe and the overskirts can be made with lace, chiffon, or tulle.
