I have been looking at the art of origami and Chinese paper folding techniques as a method of relaxation lately.  I am researching some of the various garment structures that have been achieved using the methods of origami.  I am intrigued by the simplicity of this art form and am hoping to explore this relationship in fabric.  I had my daughter fold a Chinese fortune-teller for me and began to create this dress.  The dress is made up of 100 fortune tellers in sizes ranging from 4"x4" to 20"x20".
