Decorative Paper Ball Gown

I have created a paper ball gown using cartridge paper that I painted with dye. I designed and then painted the surface patterns on the skirt and bodice myself and then added a decorative bustle on the back to create a strong visual impact. If this garment were to be made from fabric I would incorporate a subtly coloured bandeau beneath the leaf bodice so that it could be worn feasibility.
