Edit: I found a better photo of the dress!

I made this dress for our last fashion show at school.
It's made of torn fabric strips that are sewn together.
 
I'm not wearing the dress in the pictures, the girl was my model for the show.



The pictures' quality is quite bad Oo

if i say it reminds me of a post-apocalyptic afghan or shawl, i hope you will take that as the compliment it is intended as.  i like fashion design that has multiple layers of possible meaning.

I like this a lot.  Is there a lining fabric the strips are sewn to, or are they just sewn to each other?

Actually the strips are sewn onto a fabric that disappears when you wash it... I don't know how it's called in English, but the brand name is "Soluvlies"

Thanks for your comments!
