"Fashion editor-turned designer Mainbocher's black evening dress (above, left) sets off a diamanté feather at the waist. Velvet was still popular for evening and Chanel designed wide-shouldered evening suits in black velvet. This dress (above, center) is by Robert Piguet who was known for his easy tailored dresses. Black satin trimmed with silver fox was used for this Mainbocher dress with its matching cape (above, right)."

Scanned from the book "Decades of Fashion".

There is one Vogue vintage pattern that is similar to the one in the middle, especially that diamond shaped cut at the stomach. It's great to hear a detailed description of the types of fabric used..my imagination can really take off!
