Assemblage Art Dress Made From Paper and Fabric.

Small 30cm long, 18cm wide, paper and fabric assemblage dress.

A small three dimensional dress inspired by the novel – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The dress is Empire line, stitched together from old book pages (from a book of the novel) and old white cotton fabric which has been ruched and gathered. Attached to the dress are beads and mother of pearl buttons; whilst a part of the text from the novel, is sewn to the front side of a layer of the dress.

Covering the dress is an empire line styled coat intricately tailored from a dusky pink silk/viscose fabric. The coat has a clasp at the chest made from parts of an old necklace and also has two long ties.
