Olcott, New York...
Staying with my paper theme from my last posted project… made for the same photoshoot I present to you… My Coffee filter dress.
Everyone who knows me, knows how much I live on coffee! so the photographer thought it would be a fun statment to myself in the making and designing of this coffee filter dress!!
It took 1 whole package of 400 coffee filters, some cut in half, adn others left whole (you can see in the pictures) the top was gathered tulle and the under part of the skirt is filled with 8 yeards of tulle and a satin that the coffee filters where sewn on!
Again like my magazine paper dress, this is just afun design to make! I would encorage anyone who is able to, to make somthing in a unique material at one point in there life. It’s a great joy useing somthing odd or silly and seeing it become somthing wearable and interesting for photoshoots,for costums or partys, even fashion shows or events! Even if you jsut keep it on display at your workspace or home… making this design was alot of fun!!
coffee filters,thread,tulle (10 – 15 yards) 3 yards of satin(made the skirt of this design)
