This film draws a parallel between the making of a dress by stylist Aurore Doutreleau and the meeting between this dress and a woman. Sketches run across paper. A woman stops at a shop window. The fabric is placed on a pattern, is adjusted, sewn, shaped. A hand touches, tests, grazes through the fabric of the dress shown on the dressmaker’s dummy. Cutting. The large scissor blade moves forward on the fabric. In the fitting room, sensitive skin shimmers, loses patience and imagines the imminent caresses of the yet unknown fabric, a precious, silent moment. One feels, sees the excitement, the fun provided by the fitting. Assembling the garment, finishing. Materials meet, follow the shapes and movements of the body.
