Balenciaga gown Instead of overwhelming Linn's collection post, I'll put some of my treasures here. This is a favorite because of the unique collar. This Balenciaga is in poor condition. A VFG member introduced me to the seller since I would not buy it to sell the label. The front bodice extends at the neck without a seam to make the collar in the back. A colleague made a pattern of the dress for me; we made a muslin of the dress. Then she used parts of it to make a shorter MOB dress. Sorry her photos are too large to post. If you have a garment you want copied, she's very good and the garment is not taken apart.
