Fall 2020 study of 1929 dancing gown by Madame Vionnet. I began with a scan from Betty Kirke's coffee table book, which I scaled up to size in CLO3D. Within CLO I tested a variety of fabric settings, and cleaned up the pattern to suit my construction strategy. Using a plotting service, I had full-scale printed patterns delivered to my home. From there began the process of demi-couture construction. I selected two different silks to construct the dress. Because the dress is a quadrant which hangs on the bias, the fabric must be prepared by pre-cutting and weighting. The final construction is intended to mimic the techniques used in the 20s-30s, with rolled edges, French seams, and a combination of machine and hand-sewing.
