A Close Look at the Stitching Inside 2 Dior Garments

The top dress label tells us this dress is from 1966. Sadly, the silk has started to shatter, so we carefully captured some of the hidden details of these dresses.
The coatdress has belts or tabs with bound buttonholes. This shows one wrist tab with the buttonhole from the right side.

For her article "An Unexposed Zipper", Threads #174, Claire Shaeffer sent us two of her Dior originals with this same zipper application, but there was so much more beautiful stitching going on inside these garments that we decided to share a closer look with you.
