Titanic Tidbits


This week I’m featuring posts from the Titanic era and my online buddy, Paula Moldenhauer.


“Crazy tidbit I came across in my reading about the social set on Titanic in 1912: The upper class often changed their clothes up to six times a day! I’ve been searching the web for what I believe my Titanic grandmother, a fictional character named Olive Stanford, would have worn to dinner.

I found the dress here. According to the Madame Guillotine website the dress is: Callot Soeurs, evening dress, 1911-14. (Don’t know a thing about the author or her books other than what I read on her site, but loved the pictures she posted of the clothing of the era.)”
