Description

Stitched paper dress #54.2 2018

This hand-stitched Edwardian paper gown is based on a dress from ca. 1911. The dress is made from Japanese paper in a purple shade, with a silver bodice and an overlay of tissue to imitate the sheer layer of silk tulle on the original. A tassel topped by a glass bead hangs from the bottom of the overdress. Hand-embroidered lines imitate the seams and folds of the dress. It is stitched onto cold-pressed 100% cotton paper. The original dress is held by the Kyoto Costume Institute (accession AC1000 78-30-14). It features the high waist and flowing drapery of the early 1910s, new synthetic dyes enabled the use of bold colours in delicate fabrics. Dresses in this style can be seen in the early seasons of Downton Abbey.

The dress is six inches tall, hand-embroidered in cotton floss on 8x10 paper.

OTHER INFORMATION
❁ Made by hand, using papers carefully chosen from my extensive (and growing!) collection of Japanese, Italian, Korean, and Nepalese paper.

❁ Packaged in a clear sleeve, with a backing board to protect it from damage (and to make it that much easier to frame!)

❁ Each computer monitor displays colours a bit differently; if you're unsure about a colour and wondering if it's more blue-green or yellow-green, or orange-red vs. blue-red, just send me a message.

CUSTOM ORDERS
If there is a particular time period or style in the history of costume that you love, or you'd like a dress in a particular colour, let me know and I can create a custom pattern and dress for you.

If you see a paper you like but want it in one of my other designs (corsets, boots, handbags, beards & moustaches..) just let me know. If there is a particular colour you love, I can select a range of papers for you to choose from. Pick a paper, pick a design, and I'm happy to create something for you.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery

I don't accept cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders

Returns and exchange details

If the item arrives damaged, send me a picture and I will either refund the cost, or make a replacement piece. As each piece is handmade I can't guarantee that a replacement will be identical, but it will be made to the same high standard, and as close to the original as I can get it. I'll send a picture of the replacement piece for your approval prior to shipping.

If your purchase gets lost in the mail, the same refund or replacement policy applies. Although I don't, of course, expect a picture!

Similarly, if it turns out that the colour wasn't at all what you wanted (because every computer screen is different) let me know and we can discuss a refund or a replacement piece.

Shipping policies

Within North America I send the pieces by regular mail (that means Canada Post and USPS). Within Canada you can upgrade to registered mail for $9.00 (which is exactly what Canada Post charges).

Shipping overseas is a bit more expensive.

Customs Charges:
So far, I haven't had customs charge extra on any pieces that have been mailed internationally, but I can't guarantee that it won't happen. However, since I ship through the post office (and not a courier) the brokerage fees (what you pay to clear customs, in addition to the local tax charges that are the point of customs) should be minimal, if Customs does decide they really want those taxes from you!

The buyer is responsible for any import duties.
