Wonderful article! Some of my favorite memories of attending FIDM were of the antique garments from the FIDM collection being brought into the classroom. What an honor and thrill it was to see them up close.
Thank you Christina for sharing the story of this beautiful gown!

Fascinating. Thank you.

As an 'average dressmaker', there's hope for me yet! Any chance of a detailed report on the construction, and a pattern for this gown?

Christina

Regarding patterning the gown and construction...we don't presently have plans to do this. Our collection is always open to researchers, though, so if you're ever in the L.A. area, I hope you make an appointment to view the gown!

Between the research and the visuals, I am in heaven. Thank you. Carolina
