start with an old tshirt and some duct tape. I used a method for making a custom dressform. I wrapped duct tape around my torso, on top of the tshirt, for the bodice. my boyfriend helped me wrap the tape and also cut the finished "mold" off. he cut straight up the middle of the back. then I put the mold on my dress form, and sewed it back together. I applied paper mache (strips of newspaper held together with flour and water) over the duct tape. after a couple of days and thourough drying (it's humid here, it takes forever)

 I finished the surface folded strips of newspaper applied vertically with a glue and water wash. after I finished, I applied a sparkly water color wash to make it pretty. then I put in the rivets and lacing. for the skirt, I folded the remainder of my newspaper and scrunched up the edges for volume.

this is so great!!!  I was a camp counselor at a girls summer camp a couple years ago and one of the evening activities was "Newspaper Fashion Show" and the girls would have to dress up one girl in a newspaper outfit-  This reminds me so much of that !!! way cool!
