attrib. Vionnet Day Dress 1926
Just as the work of artists is identifiable by its brushwork, materials and composition, so is the work of Madeleine Vionnet. This attribution to her is based on the construction pattern which involves a single pattern piece for the red underdress: no shoulder seams; the side seams in the normal place; double darts at the bust. However, the chiffon overdress has seams at the shoulders but not at the sides. Its two halves are joined at the centre front and back. The arrangement of seams enhances the sculptural quality of the dress by refusing to align the pattern pieces in terms of a conventional front and back.
