Description

I made this dress for an art contest on my school. I got the third prize. I while ago I made a sketch of it and I tought it would be nice if I made it for real. It’s smaler than a normal dress, you can’t wear it. But it’s nice to stand in my livingroom! :)

    Beautiful work and beautiful art! Clothing is art whether it is worn or not. This type of art should always be encouraged, so let your creative energies flow!

      with once I mean not much, there aren’t many occasions to wear a dress like this

      You are wrong, but that is my opinion. LOL Who made such rules! Clothing has been used as inspiration, art, etc, for centuries.

      I prefer watching this dress every day, than to wear it one time in a year
      and clothing is all about looking at!

    This is fantastic! It’s a shame it’s not a wearable as that would be a real statement dress, although it probably gets seen more and appreciated more as a display piece!
