A “dress” made out of elastic bands and a zipper. Looks really cool over a tight dress or a top. All you really need is a pair of scissors, elastic band and a needle. I wish a had my manikin when I made this but I got through :)

Material Notes

Elastic band and a zipper




Garment Type
Evening Wear, Goth/Gothic Lolita, Grunge, Mod, Rock

    I saw something very similar to this on and posted it on my blog, but i like this a lot more because its one whole piece instead of two. Love this.

    Cool idea. It reminds me of a Hervé Léger dress.

    oh my i could NEVAH pull that off, but it is such a cool look. very reminiscent of the madonna/gaultier years, but with such simple materials. looks great with your hairdo as well. good job!!

    This looks really cool, and I suppose it’s functional too cos you can put it over any colour dress you want!
