Duct Tape Dress

Chattanooga, Ten...






I taught a duct tape sculpture class at summer camp. I made this dress to show off at the dance they have on the last night of camp. It went over well!

Material Notes

Duct tape and toilet paper for lining.

    i’ve thought about making one before but wondered about it stretching a bit, like when i sit down. did it leave any stretching marks on the seat of the dress after sitting? thanks!

    This is very creative – a wearable work of art. I’m curious about how you put it together. Is it made all in one piece? Did you use a zip?

      I taped myself in, haha.. In a way it is a zipper, it’s just tape instead, but it comes on and off. For the skirt i put tape onto thick toilet paper to be the backing.. the top is taped to itself, so the lining is duct tape.

    It’s really great and looks classic although the material is very daring. I love it. Was it made on a form or directly on your skin?

    Wow, it looks so elegant! Is there a zipper in the back or how do you pull it on?

    Amazing! From the 2nd photo it looks like it hangs pretty well… considering the material.
