This early vintage long green dress is so dramatic !
Tall you would have to be to wear something like this, but oh, so warm and cosy. It was made in a heavy textile and bordered with bands of fur around the top bodice and the skirt at the bottom. This image was found in a historical french journal along with some others.
Clusters of flowers from head to toe are all hand made.
Bold embroidery patterns are beautiful around the hem of this style. An inspiration for luxurious evening gowns.
