My favorite Vionnet gown, circa 1938. Made of rayon with decorative silk fringe in a scalloped motif. Vionnet embroidered individual graduated lengths of silk thread passed and looped through the fabric, with each thread forming two drops of fringe.
Short dress, Madeleine Vionnet, 1927. Silk crepe in a straight shape, round neckline, sleeveless. Bodice and skirt are finely pleated vertically; yoke is finely pleated horizontally. Musée Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris
