I love the effort you put into that dress.  Now I do have wonder where you found that many Tyvek bags?  Were you able to buy the material in yards, or are they seriously tons of inside-out Fedex bags?

We started with a Fedex bag, but then DuPont sells through suppliers large rolls of "Tyvek soft structure".  Which is lightweight, yet really strong (water-, chemcal-, puncture-, tear-, and abrasion-resistant)  Which makes this some pretty cool stuff.

I love how it looks like raw silk, and it sews pretty great too. However, once you poke it, or stitch it, there is no going back, the hole isn't going away.  So you have to be REALLY careful with pins.

I was wondering how many different post offices you'd have to steal from to get enough to make that dress!!

I want to use it to make some weather-proof type clothing.

oh, and i recommend use paper clips or binder clips for these types of materials.

again, great job!

The panniers are made out of canvis and are about the size of toliet seats.  Which is kinda hystarical. 

LOL

I've worn panniers and bum rolls like that. They are nothing short of hysterical! I like the inventive use of material.

I for one can't believe that this is only your second project post!
Really looking forward to seeing more of what you can do - especially after this one. It's simply amazing - you'd never think it was made out of such an ordinary object.

Plus it's always awesome to find crafty guys on Craftster. It seems odd that they're so scarce :/

Did you also make the head piece?

And I agree with danigirl - it looks amazing on stage!

Ahhhh!  Thank you so much!  Yeah! I've been stalking Craftster for awhile and did my first posts today. It's great to get feedback from people! Craftster people are so freakin cool!

Yes, it looked pretty great on stage.  And no, I didn't make the head piece. The Designer (my bestfriend Emily) made it while she laughted at me sewing a paper bodice.  errrrr


It's nice to have another active member then!  Grin
I always find it hilarious how many guests there are compared to users.

"Craftster people are so freakin cool!" I'm certainly not going to disagree on that  Wink

Though I must admit - I'm quite curious to what everyone's reactions would be if this was worn in public! XD

Really looking forward to seeing future projects  Cheesy

That is so awesome!  You're probably getting tired of hearing it.  I've worn tyvek "bunny suits" and it is HOT inside that stuff.  I wonder how the actress fared under stage lights?  Of course, the dress leaves a lot of ventilation room.  Was the tyvek expensive?
