    Wow… I love this dress and most of your other projects. I love the photos too. And on top of that I’m absolutely impressed you’re just 15! I’m sorry, you must get this all the time :$ but what can I say, it really is impressive. I don’t think my mom can sew this good xD

    How did you stick the paper bags together? Did you actually sew them or use tape? Does it have a zipper? I have so many questions about this dress. My brain goes funny looking at it… it’s mind blowing!!!! you are SO talented!!!! What a gift!!!

    It doesn’t look like plastic bags at all at first sight, more like silk organza or something. Fabulous work, well done!
