Pinup #030: Pinup dress in apricot and pink with crinoline. 2020
This darling little pinup dress is made from Japanese chiyogami paper patterned in pink and white flowers on an apricot background; it is hand stitched in cotton floss onto cold-pressed 100% cotton paper. The belted dress features short sleeves, a Peter Pan collar, and glass beads standing in for buttons. Hand embroidered lines imitate the folds of the skirt, and a crinoline made from Japanese tissue peeks out from underneath.
The dress is six inches tall, hand-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.
