Doucet Black Velvet Evening Gown c.1908
Evening gown of black silk velvet embroidered with jet beads in a motif of roses, custom designed to the shape of the dress. The dress consists of a slightly blouson bodice with a slightly raised waistline suggestive of an empire revival style and a low decolltage and a long narrow skirt which extends into a train at the back. The pattern of the surface decoration was custom designed to the shape of the dress and accentuates its feeling of elongation. The short sleeves are made of silk tulle.
