CoutureGRAM: Chanel Strapless Lace Dress

Back to CoutureGRAM series! If you haven't read these posts yet, I am occasionally featuring in-detail images of couture garments I find on the web. Occasionally, because it is not easy to find detailed shoots of couture garments. This lace dress was posted on ebay, and it is undoubtedly a couture piece. So, why don't we learn something new from the few available details. Luckily, there is a fair use doctrine that allows us to do just this.

Back to the dress. It is a simple, slightly flared silhouette, and you can see that the dress has seen better times. But for me, it was interesting to see how the closure was treated on lace and lining layers, and the innards of the dress foundation, with boning and breast padding. Enjoy!

  2. I'm curious about the purpose of the ribbons on the front princess seam boning casings. Very cool find!

  3. I immediately wondered about those ribbons as well. A stay of some sort?

    1. I am almost certain the ribbons are for holding the dress on a hanger (similar to the loops found on the underarm of many garments). They are first threaded through thread bars which are barely visible above the bust cups, then over the ends of the hanger. At least I have seen similar on some bridal gowns.

    2. Thanks for that info. I thought that could be a possibility. They seem to be beautifully hand stitched.

  4. Hallo Marina,
    ich nähe gerade eine Ballrobe und habe ein Baumwoll-Band in der Taille zur Sicherung der Chiffonnaht geplant, und dank Deiner Bilder ist mir jetzt auch klar, wie ich den Reissverschluss entlasten kann- einfach die letzten cm des Bandes mit Haken und Öse verbinden. Vielen Dank!
    Liebe Grüße
