I made this dress for an art competition in about a week. It was stressful and it didn’t even get a prize! They said it wasn’t “wearable” enough. PSH.
Well it is basically all made out of kroger bags except for the base of the skirt which is a black garbage bag and the base shape for the bra which is paper plates. On each bra cup is one continuous plastic rope woven from strips of the bag. It made a great texture and I was so happy with the finished product anyhow. My model, Rachel, was completely flawless and she made the dress come to life. All in all I am quite glad I put the work in, it turned out to be a great project.
