This is a dress made entirely of playing cards that I did as a found object project for my fashion class this year. It was challenging but fun! I could hardly move around in it, but it worked out for the end of the year fashion show. Smiley

That is not exactly practical, but it looks so cool! I like your little red shoes too.

How is it all held together?

   How funny! I bet that took forever and a day to get all put together, huh. Are they like glued to fabric or is it just the playing cards sewn together somehow??? Very cool project!

Awesome~

You know, I didn't notice this in person but the inside of the dress, where you can see the card fronts, is really cute when you catch a glimpse of it!

It's all just playing cards glued to one another by Sobo glue! That's some strong stuff.
