Me and a group of girls made this for one of our classes… it is made entirely out of plastic bags. The bags on the bodice are fused and the skirt is a patchworked circle skirt. I’m really excited about how it turned out, I hope you like it too!

    This is awesome! Years ago I hosted an anything but clothes party – guests were to come dressed in anything but clothes made out of traditional fabrics, this dress would have put all of ours to shame! AND, it’s a dress I’d want to wear again. VERY cute!!!

    Cute! 10 years ago I made few skirts out of plastic bags for the Halloween party me and my friends attended. Such an unusual experience.

    Oh my god this is fantastic! Last year I had put alot of effort into teaching my self how to knit with yarn made of kroger bags, and wanted to do something like this, but it was too time consuming and hard on my hands. I’m not sure how you did all of this but it is really great and your group should be ridiculously proud-bravo!
