Haha bad pun, sorry, I couldn't help myself.
The campus bar recently hosted an Anything but Clothes event where best costume won $500. I decided to make a dress out a novel, figuring it would be pretty $500 worthy if executed properly. I lost to mostly-naked boys...I guess drunks appreciate nudity more than hard work! Anyways...
The book I sacrificed, along with a boob-in-progress. I bought it at a used book store and it had that nice yellow colour.
The skirt was made of several pieces like this stapled together.
My roommate's coffee filter dress, inspired by htking's http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=269921.0
And, cause we're cute:
The top survived the night fairly well, considering it was a long one. Unfortunately, the skirt got ripped to shreds.
