The museum was great. It showed dresses from several eras since the 1800s that were all designed and worn in Montreal. Some were beautiful classic pieces while others were just art without any function. I did my best to photograph them and I will share with you what I have.
This organza was treated with chemicals to give it the swirls.
those stripes are all meticulously hand stitched with two rows.
This dress is made out of jute.
see through dress is wearable art.
I love the way they can tell by the waist and bust that this was made for an older woman and the one below for a younger woman.
the lace is all made by hand.
Interesting how the zipper doesn't go all the way to the top to interfere with the collar.
