Harem Pants or Jupe-Culottes, America, ca. 1913

Very rare harem pants or Jupe-culottes, ca. 1913. Origin: America. This type of dress was inspired by Paul Poiret and the fashion of the Ballet Russes. This dress here probably was too. For a short time, these dresses were the absolute fashion rage - in Europe and America. The special thing about them are the (Turkish) trousers worked into the skirt (hence the name Jupe-Culottes). In the film Downton Abbey Lady Sybil also wears such harem pants in one of the episodes - much to the horror of her grandmother, the Dowager Countess of Grantham.

This antique dress is made of cinnamon-coloured silk with a stylised tulip pattern. In the thigh area silk and lace are cascaded (as an overskirt). The same lace continues in the upper part, in the area of the shoulders. Half-length sleeves made of several layers of tulle and lace. Pleated & set-in ankle cuff with two decorative, self-adorned buttons. Decoration made of grey tulle in the belly area. Very elaborate closure backwards. Several layers of tulle are closed with press studs. The dress is well preserved, but has some flaws: small holes in the tulle, small tear in the lace in the overskirt, small stains, dusty tulle. But one thing is more important: the lace in the shoulder area is torn. It should be backed up and repaired/restored. A very, very rare dress. Dresses of this kind can only be admired in museums today. The decoration is not included.
