Draped Dresses: How and When to Take Them

The draped effect It is so appealing and refined as something complicated. Paul Poiret He made it his flagship and decorated the silhouette of the woman with sumptuous fabrics using this technique directly on the models instead of cutting and sewing the pieces as he had so far.

Applied in bustiers or Bras (which no corsets, precisely he delivered to his tie waist up woman), skirts, and dresses, giving the feminine garment a precious touch of Orientalism y Greco-Roman flavour, and today many are those who have followed its trail.

As I said is not a silhouette that is easy to take since the disposition of the fabric in pleats, does this take much volume and depends on where it is placed, where begins the fall or bias, the body that picks up the fabric is heavy and tends to widen.

It is a perfect structure for short dresses, to mid-calf or longer, and serve the same day that night although it may seem that you being something quite elaborate is not suitable if you want to get a casual look. Perfect is applied to dresses crossed, open or with slight blistering shirt type. And if bias starts at the height of the waist, it tends to hide the hips.
