Here is my final exam project my Fashion II class had to do. It wasn't that hard. You had to create and outfit out of recycled items and if you needed to buy something then it had to only cost up to $5.00.The recycled items consist of: black trash bags, Wal-Mart grocery bags, red duct tape, a gold gift bag, tomato soup paper, old black and white felt, picnic table fabric, pop cap covers, black party streamers, gold sequined fabric from an old flapper costume, an old red blouse (used fabric and buttons), cardboard, and thread. We had to make a complete outfit. My outfit is just a halter top dress with a corset in the back made from the pop cap tops, ballet flats, a purse, and a bracelet an necklace. You had to model it on final exam days. My teacher kept it to give to the principal to display it in his office for next year with all the other art.  Tongue

It's adorable. In the far away picture(where you can't see the detail on the soup labels or the pop tabs too much XD)you could never guess it was recycled.
