Okay, so today one of the higher-ups at work told me that this Saturday (the 21st), there's an ABC (Anything But Clothes) party she's going to...So after coming up with completely outrageous outfits (corn husks, make a giant Shake costume...etc), we decided upon duct tape. After work we went over to Wal-Mart and we decided that just duct tape isn't a great idea, so we found a dress that would be okay and went off to buy duct tape.
Okay...I know that duct tape and cottony fabric aren't exactly the best of friends (they'll stick together, but they don't really want to, like the hems, how'll that work?)
So, here's a picture of the basic dress...

It's not really stretchy, the back is shirred but it's basically stretched completely when she wears it (/tit envy) so I was thinking if I layered the duct tape over it whilst stretched and maybe add like a zipper?
Also, she wants the skirt to be striped diagonally (which will be fun!) with 4 different colors, any suggestions?
Also, this is the best picture I can find of her (yay for Facebook creeping).

Any suggestions of how to do this? I have to have it done by Saturday and I work Tuesday thru Friday after school and won't get home till like 8, so that will be fun!

I made a bee costume by duck taping all over a dress, the tape stuck pretty well I thought.   Is she just going to wear it once?   Maybe do all the duck tape on the skirt and front bit, and then have her put it on and then finish the back where the shirring is.
