A Design by Vermont, c. 1913

Dress Designs, Melanie Vermont, 1913, The Victoria & Albert Museum
Melanie Vermont created these pencil sketches in 1913 as designs for two evening gowns. They’re an excellent window into the mindset of a designer of the 1910s, a time when flowing material and drapery were quite en vogue. To this end, lighter and softer textiles were being employed. These free-flowing designs allowed a woman to be less-corseted and restricted.Source: Stalking the Belle Époque
