Pret-a-papier: The incredible period gowns recreated with paper, glue, paint - and not a stitch of fabric. An century dress made by artist Isabelle de Borchagrave is part of an exhibition in which all the gowns are made entirely from paper MARIE INSPIRED
This gown has a skirt of printed cotton and a silk bodice. This makes it look like two separate garments, although the two are sewn together. The cotton is printed in a pattern of pine trees, lilacs, dianthus, convolvulus and daisy trails.
