Two day dresses

of the "Titanic Era"

Period: around 1911

Typical stylistic features of the two day dresses of the late Belle Époque, the ‘Titanic era’, are the high waists, which were en vogue until 1911, as well as the multi-layered skirt sections and the fluffy materials.

An original blouse made of delicate muslin was incorporated into the striped cotton dress. High lace collars were worn in the Belle Époque until 1913, and bodice skirts were popular for daywear, often made in several layers and with boning at the top. Decorations with buttons and reversed bows are further stylistic features. The three-layered bodice skirt is based on an original pattern.
The flowered cotton batiste dress is worn with a gathered skirt section, accentuated by a satin edging and floral bouquet. This motif is repeated by the high-set belt. A delicate tulle lace blouse is worn under the draped bodice.
Two matching straw hats with flowers, feathers and a tulle bow are included.
