This dress is a non-textile project I made for school. The project was to find any kind of material (except fabric) and make a garment out of it. It was veeeeery chalenging! It took me several days and hours to get it completed. I made a dress in muslin to serve as a base and constructed the non-textile pieces on top of it. I hand stiched almost everything, even the side ziper (It was painful getting a needle through several layers of plastic, muslind and screeing!!!). The materials are windows screen, plastic bags and plastic table cover. The top was all covered in about 400 petal shaped pieces of windows screening and trash bag. I added a head piece to complete the look for the fashion show at school. I posted a video of the show on YOUTUBE " http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv0VtVjiVeU " . It is interesting to see the other students projects as well.
