I’m beginning to catch up with myself, managed to create the first of the “Little Women” inspired assemblage art dresses.
I’ve not named this piece for one of the sisters as it was just based upon the novel itself. I want to try and get hold of a few copies of the book before I start to create pieces attributable to each individual sister. I’ll use the pages of the book to help form a dress and the cover will be used to form a backdrop.
A small three dimensional dress inspired by the novel – Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The bodice is made from old book papers, sculpted and stitched together. The skirt is stitched together from old book pages, a soft pale blue cotton fabric with pearly beads sewn on and a soft neutral grey coloured satin which has been ruched and gathered. Covering the dress is an intricately tailored coat. Adorning the coat is a tiny cameo vintage piece of jewelery.
