Golden Book Gown: Refashioning at it’s Finest!


There are not too many things that make me say, “Wow!”

But, holy cow, when I came across this Golden Book Gown by Ryan Jude Novelline, I was absolutely amazed and I thought you might enjoy it as much as I did!

The bodice is made from the golden spines of original Golden Books and the dress is made entirely from the pages.

    This is really pretty, not really wearable though, unless you get invited to the Book Club themed Met GalaπŸ™‚

  11. Gjeometry says:

    Yes, definitely WOW! Do you think this dress is actually wearable? Or is it more like those dresses made out of toilet paper that look good, but you can’t bend over in them?

  12. Jo H. says:

    How creative! The colours are beautiful. A storybook dress … from storybooks!

    This is too cool! It’s funny because, before I even read your comments, I saw the picture and immediately thought of a book I had as a child. It was one of my all time favorites and I think it was called something like The Twelve Dancing Princesses? Anyway, thanks for the good memory.

  14. Golden Book were printed by Western Publishing in Racine, WI were I grew up! Little did I know when my uncle Bob, an engraver with this company, brought all these books to us a gorgeous dress could be fashioned from them! Amazing!

  15. Reblogged this on a little bird made me and commented:
    This is my first ever reblog – prompted by the post by The Renegade Seamstress on a gorgeous example of refashioned clothing – a dress made from Little Golden Books. Enjoy!

    WOW!!! incredible!

  17. blankenmom says:

    How’d they get the pages to be soft to lay right and not be all…. papery?

  18. My goodness! Another reason to love my old golden books!

    Definitely clicking the “Like” button is not what I wanted to do here…..as there needs to be a “Love” button! This dress is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! I love it! Now, I bet you are looking around your place to see what you can use for a dress…am I right?

  20. I love Golden books! So much its bittersweet for me! I can’t imagine “destroying” them to make something so “beautiful”! But it is quite gorgeous!

    I just found you from yesterdayPinterest- and have to admit I have been stalking the ins and outs of your blog already! Very nice! You have a new subscriber!πŸ™‚
