Map of A Life Dress

Map of A Life Dress by Ingrid Mida 2010
Vintage Maps, Thread, Glue, Mannequin

This dress was constructed out of maps collected by my mother on her travels around the world. I styled it after her favourite A-line cut of dress to fit her measurements. It really should have had a ruffle into the V-neck but the maps were so fragile that I could not manipulate them easily and feared having the whole thing fall apart.
