Dress #065: Regency dress in brown
This hand-stitched brown Regency dress, straight out of a Jane Austen novel, is made from Ajisai Japanese paper. Hand-embroidered lines imitate the seams and folds of the dress. It is stitched onto cold-pressed 100% cotton paper. The piece is based on an America dress from ca. 1815, held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (accession 2009.300.943).
The dress is six inches tall, stitched by hand on 8x10 inch paper, which means that it will pop right into any commercial frame in that size, and be ready to hang on your wall.Materials: Japanese paper and cotton floss on cotton paper
