While I don't know anything about Titanic's lifejackets, if the source you read was correct as to the material being "canvas", then "canvas cotton duck" would probably fit the bill perfectly. If you've ever seen Carhartt work clothing (the tan/brown jackets, pants and overalls that are a favorite of utility workers and outside contractors in the US in colder months), that's the same material. It also happens to be the same material that's used for painting ("canvas".) Here's a picture that shows the appearance of the weave up close (click on the photo captioned "unprimed"):

Here's one source I found for this material. My thought is that you'd want a lighter weight (7 oz), bleached:
