The essence of Dior

Showing off my Dior jacket before heading to Paris is by far my most read post.

The funny thing is that I started to call it the Dior jacket way back when I started the project, even though I didn't have a  clear reference object. It was more about the essence of Dior than actually copying Dior.

Or at least I thought so, until one day when I was browsing Pinterest as you do. And there it was - the Dior jacket. My jacket.

It links to a dead end, so I know nothing more than 1950 Christian Dior. The collar is there. The peplum and the padded hips. My buttons are nicer and I don't have any pockets. This photo would have been the ultimate inspiration. (You can read about construction in previous posts; skirt and collar, peplum and the padded hips and finally, button-holes and lining)

But I will say that I nailed the essence of Dior.
