This is my self-drafted slip.
Bias cut silk satin.
Finished with self-made silk bias.
Lace at the hem.
A little luxury everyday.
Madeleine Vionnet brought the bias cut to the world of dress design in the 1920s
The bias cut is said to allow the fabric to skim and flow across the body like water.
Madeleine said ‘there is something superficial and volatile about the seasonal and elusive whims of fashion which offends my sense of beauty.’
This gorgeous 22 mm silk satin from Tessuti is beauty indeed,
‘dusty’ pink and ‘latte’.
Do you have something luxurious you love to wear?
