I recently listened to a video with this title and was very energised by it.
Madeliene Vionnet was mentioned in a show Sewing Bee week. I knew about her because my daughter once told me she was the person responsible for us learning about the bias cut.
I find clothes cut in this way drape beautifully. I once had a white satin dress in this style and felt like the bees knees when I wore it.
