1920 Fortuny dress of red stenciled velvet and purple China silk
Had a little fun with this one. Fell in love with this extant Fortuny dress and realized I had fabrics in the stash that would work for something similar. This Fortuny dress is made from stenciled silk velvet with a pleated purple China silk “Delphos” dress underneath. I still am no closer to figuring out how to do an authentic pleated Delphos gown, but I’m leaning in the direction that arashi shibori might be the closest method.
