I love making paper dresses!
I’m obsessed with my paper dress

I finally made one for a sock monkey.
Surprised that it took me so long!
Not sure why it is so satisfying, but it is!
The classic sock monkey is made out of luscious work socks.
The paper dress dress is double sided with original chinamarker drawings (front portrait of a hedgehog on a rose and back- a Daniel Clowes inspired fan art portrait of Little Enid from Ghost World).
The monkey measures about 14″ high.
Proceeds support sock monkey therapy with local at-risk youth!

I do love creating this wearable art/wall hangings as it combines drawing and craft.
It is also an extension of my street art and the person wearing the dress becomes a living art wall/performance artist.
The style is based on an 1960’s A-frame pattern. I use the authentic pattern as popularized by Andy Warhol and sold by greeting card companies in the 60’s.
The dress contains my original drawings, embroidered sections as well as close borders. I use recycled/upcycled product.
You send me your shoulder width and chest dimension and shoulder to knee length.
Your chosen theme can be ANYTHING (no censorship) and I’ll run with MY creative interpretation. I will share the making of the dress process on the blog and on my social media.
Here are some examples of my previous dresses in use:
