Not discounting the dye job - super special. But, the reconstruct alone is brilliant. I had to stare at those photos for quite a while to accept it was really a reconstruct not a different dress --- a complete teardown and reconstruct.  Great job.

Love it - it is a very cheerful quilt, which is what I think you were probably trying to express.

If it is fabric glued to some sort of card board / heavy stock - yes

If it is a heavyweight fabric, I have seen this type of thing done with an iron and a rubber stamp (by ironing the back of the fabric while it is draped over the rubber stamp to the front.  I saw it with velvet - the idea is you are crushing/embossing the nap.

It looks like it is a variant on this


it starts with one flower and increases to four motifs - and yours looks like 7 - it would take some finagling but I think this would get you there.

Oh my, she does look miserable doesn't she -- such a shame, but maybe with lots of praise she will start to understand how much you like it and warm up to it -- good luck

Blocking is stretching and shaping it.  It is really helpful with a lace-type pattern.  You get the piece damp wet and then lay it out flat, pulling/stretching/shaping till it has the shape it needs, pinning it in place if needed (making sure you use stainless pins so that they don't rust in place) until it dries.

That would make it less bunchy and ruffly.

This is just too damn cute for words - apparently I missed that email thread from the many that get passed around.  Thanks for sharing this. I can think of many of my close friends and family that would adore this.
