Exquisite painted photography, digital art, and collage brings to life the story of a seamstress who gives her only daughter a golden dress that grants the girl’s every wish throughout the years. But when the dress begins to age, the girl struggles to embrace the change—and risks losing her mother’s heart and her own special place in the world. A blue lace wind shares the secret of what will be lost, unless the girl can find a way to open her heart and her hands before the dress completely disappears.
