Rose's Strolling Dress is worn when she is walking with Jack on deck. The bodice is an antique white silk embellished with dark gold embroidery. The embroidery can be seen on the shoulder lines, sleeve caps, and cuffs. (see below) The v-shaped neckline is graced with a scalloped lace. The bottom of the neckline's V is a small lace bib.

This silhouette was a popular trend during the pre-WWI years. The skirt is of silk with an oriental influence. The shirt is narrow and pulled up in the center front creating a draped effect. The belt that was on the Titanic tour was different than the one in the film. This belt is wider and the buckle is made of self-fabric than the film's belt. The buckle in the film has stones or jewels. The shoes are of a matching yellow color with rosettes on the toes.
