1920's Callot Soeurs Couture Attribute Silk Rosettes Filet-Lace Flapper Dress

About

Breathtaking 1920's museum quality dress with two layers cleverly designed to complement each other; a fine filet-lace outer layer with a foliate design over an ecru silk-crepe slip layer embroidered with pastel silk-ribbon rosettes. The rosettes are positioned under the filet-lace design so that they appear to be the blooms of the foliate in the lace! The overall effect is quite spectacular, and the dress has survived beautifully over the years. A small label in the interior reading "Weathered Misses Shop Chicago", which was the one shop in Chicago able to import French couture. The original owner of the garment said the shop was able to do this by selecting the couture designs overseas. Having the patterns and materials shipped over for fabrication in their own workrooms, allowed them to sidestep the hefty import tax on already completed couture models. The design and construction are identity to Callot Soeurs aesthetic who was known for working with wealth American clients. A rare piece of ethereal fashion history. Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:44 inches This Callot Soeurs attributed dress from Martha Weathered is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or holes. The garment slips over the head with side metal-snaps. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. Museum quality and appears to have been worn little if at all. This dress is over 80 years old and is truly breathtaking.
