Matelassé is a weaving or stitching technique yielding a pattern that appears quilted or padded. Matelassé may be achieved by hand, on a jacquard loom or a quilting machine. It is meant to mimic the style of hand-stitched quilts made in France. It is a luxurious textile that appears to be padded, but actually has no padding within the fabric.
This dress is in excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see. Some discolouration to the lining but this is not noticeable when worn.
