Took me three months and how you see is hand embroidery, no printed :3
I hope take pictures with a full coordinate soon!
This is utterly insanely amazingly impressive. I’m absolutely floored. How many stitches is that! I find just samplers tedious, and this is a whole skirt-sized copy of the LotR map? And clearly it had to be adapted onto a skirt from paper…
Wow, this is amazing!
I want to learn embroidery so I can make one of my own.

Roald Dahl created some of the best-loved children’s stories of the 20th century, such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “Matilda” and “James and the Giant Peach”. Having that in mind, Vogue UK enlisted Tim Burton (who of course directed one adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and produced another for James and the Giant Peach), actors Helena Bonham Carter, Imelda Staunton and Jamie Bell, and musician Lightspeed Champion amongst others, to help bring to life, Dahl’s powerful vision through fashion.
The editorial takes its name from Dahl’ successful short story collection.
