This hand-stitched paper 1920s dress is made from silvered blue tissue layered over blue and white filigree chiyogami (Japanese paper), in imitation of the scarf-like fabric of the original; glass beads form the shoulder straps. The design is based on a dress by Amy Linker, from the May 1923 issue of 'Les Modes : revue mensuelle illustrée des Arts décoratifs appliqués à la femme'.

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.
