But really, is making a duct tape dress even typical at all?  This one I made for an independent study.  I used a garbage bag base, covered with duct tape and then streamers!  Whatchu think?

Cute! And very nicely done.  I had no idea it wasn't a normal fabric dress from the photos.

Is it ruffles? No, when I layered the streamers on the dress, I put them all very straight and flat across.  What I did after I was done was very gently stretch every row in little increments so that it looked a little ruffled... Smiley

Is it comfortable? Well...if you're just standing there sure, it's okay.  It's pretty heavy though and the edge at the bottom of the dress, though you can't see it, is kinda rough so prolonged walking isn't really ideal as we found out during the photo shoot.  hah Smiley

I love it. The streamers are absolutely brilliant, and the gradient looks fantastic.
