1940s Pattullo-Jo Copeland

A fantastic and early Patullo-Jo Copeland piece that is very well made and has a really unusual fabric as well. You can see the influence of the late 20s and 30s in the shape and cut still! The bodice is made of a fine black silk taffeta that has an unusual stripe of yarn worked directly into the fabric. It creates little rows with looped "balls" all along each and has a slight 3D effect too! Really wonderful to see in real life! The neckline is high and has an adorable bow worked into it that sits at one side. The sleeves fall just below the elbow and the dress is cut to follow the torso down past the hips. Once it gets past the hip a kicky fine wool crepe skirt adds a nice touch of movement! A really wonderful piece that is fairly rare and in excellent condition.
