I have to write an essay on something that I consider to be a masterpiece, and why I think that is so. Instead of doing something boring and generic (the Mona Lisa, for example), I think I’ll write about Dior’s Tailleur Bar suit. It’s the famous cream-and-black ensemble that launched the New Look.
So I’m looking for details on its construction. I do have Couture Sewing Techniques, but it’s not immediately at hand, and I haven’t really ever read the jackets/suits section. Does anyone know if this informaion is available? And if so, where can I get my hands on it?
