Crêpe backed silk satin In 1931 Vogue coined the phrase ‘poured in’ to describe the fit of the sheath dress. The long bias-cut panels cling to the natural curves of the body, which, for the first time was the fashionable shape. The skilful cut and the inventive design of twisted serpent-like tails is reminiscent of Elsa Schiaparelli’s work.      Title     Evening Dress, 1932

Evening Dress, Madeleine Vionnet: 1932, bias-cut silk satin. "...Vionnet's stretching and smoothing of the fabric in advance, along with her artistic cutting and sewing skills, kept the shape of the dress after its construction. The bias cut became a useful technique in the 1930s, when consciousness of body line was revived in fashion. As though Vionnet were an anatomist, her grasp of the body's form using her characteristic split line and bias cut fabric personified innovative garments."
