In my Advanced Pattern class we were assigned to buy as many items from the local dollar store as we needed to make an evening outfit.  I used rubber gloves, a couple whoopee cushions and sponges.  This is what I came up with:


Front



Back

My original plan was to use balloons, but when I couldn't find any i resorted to the closest thing i could find and ended up grabbing several things from the cleaning section.
I first made a base out of blue scrubby pads (except for the princess panels made of whoopee cushions and gloves which i sewed on their own... not such a good idea, they started ripping apart after awhile) and attached the waistband by hand and each individual glove on the skirt portion with my sewing machine.  I attached the "fringe" (glove fingers and sponges) on the front and the back using my sewing machine and stitching each row at a time.

Thanks for looking =)

That is one of the coolest dresses I've ever seen. Awesome job! How did you come up with the idea of using rubber gloves?

Very nice -- so creative -- I second the question in wondering how you ever came up with that idea.

Wonderful! Haha, the dress that "fits like a glove"?

How'd you put them together? Did you sew it? Glue it?

Also, this rocks.

 Cheesy When I saw the thumbnail pic, I thought you made a dress covered in yellow feathers (I had to squint, no glasses)..even better!  That's the coolest made-from-rubber-gloves-whoopee-sponge dress I've ever seen!  Wink
