This hand-stitched dress is made from a blue flowered Japanese chiyogami paper. It is based on a French robe a la française from 1760-1770, held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (accession 2009.300.903a, b)
The dress is six inches tall, stitched by hand on 8x10 inch 100% cotton watercolour paper, which means that it will pop right into any commercial frame in that size, and be ready to hang on your wall.
