You Can Frame That? – orange tutu

Stick around, and you’ll learn that we frame a lot more articles of clothing than one might expect. Today’s example certainly stands out for a few reasons.

It’s not a sports jersey, which is what we often put in shadow boxes. A shadow box is neccessary so that the glass won’t touch the fabric. But it also had to compliment its feminine nature and design. So we built a shadow box out of two frames – one for the front, and one turned on its side to make the sides of the box. The dress was sewn to the mat in the back of the box, and the mat at the front enhances the overall look as well as adding support to the glass.
What favorite piece of clothing would you like to frame?
