The Great Drapo

Want to make a dress with out sewing? Well, check out the pictures above and the video below. They are of the Great Drapo. The Great Drapo (Alphonse Bergé 1895-1955) demonstrates his skill at creating a dress from bolts of fabric in mere seconds by wrapping the fabric around the model. The end results are amazing. If I tried wrapping myself in fabric, I'd end up looking like a mummy, not as gorgeous as his creations are. The pictures above are from the NYPL Digital Gallery. Enjoy!
