So...this weekend my school had an ABC Dance (Anything But Clothes) and what would any self-respecting craftster do? Go all out, of course!
Hopefully you can see it well. The pictures aren't great. I forgot to take pics predance.
The vest is made out of plastic shopping bags, duct tape, and shoelaces (to lace the corset-type part).
Skirt and back of vest:
The skirt is made of pleated magazine pages. It was actually quite easy! The back of the vest is a bag from my school's bookstore. I had to throw in a little LMU pride.
You can kinda see the skirt in better detail. The vest looks bunchy, but ignore that. It really wasn't.
Anyway...I was quite proud of my creation. It took about three hours total. Probably two of those hours were just cutting duct tape (such a pain!).
