Wrapped up in a Good Story

So this is what I made for the Calendar of Tales. It’s for the July story, because the idea of being both comforted by and perilously lost in books hits pretty deep with me. Books and stories have been my companions as long as I can remember, and when the world walks out on you, they can be a shelter and an exile.

I designed and stitched this wrap dress in the buttery shade of old  paperbacks and wrote out the words to Neil Gaiman’s story on it.
