Description

This was a dress I made for a school fashion show. I am a high school senior. It is non-textile dress made completely out of family photos (175 photos). The skirt is held up by a belt. The skirt is made out of hoops that I made out of plastic strapping and hose clips. Over that is yards of white tulle and ribbons on which I stapled the photos too. It was a great show. I definitely went out with a boom my senior year.

    Wow! I agree with Mary Athey. You should definitely display these dresses. Get a blog going (if you don;t have one already) I’d love to see what you make next!

    Really imaginative, it’s such a lovely idea. I guess there’d be a way of transferring multiple photos to fabric, might start a whole new trend!
