Haaai Everybody,

Here's a little sneak peak of the dress I'm working on, a newspaper dress. It is not done yet, the skirt isn't completely finished and I have to add a zipper in the back. I'm also still thinking about making it more poof, but we will see that later on.

I will post some new photo's when its finished and wearable (at least that is the plan)

the dress in total, you can still see the needles though ^^


Some detailing from the top


And some detailing of the bottom dress


It's all glued together by the way. I hope you all like it, at least i do Tongue

This looks amazing. I love how all the folds add in a different texture.

This is so awesome! I love seeing dresses that aren't made of conventional materials. :] How are you going to get the zipper in?

Thanks a lot ^^
It's not for a paticular project, i made it just for fun. I've glued the zipper between two paper straps and i'm planning on glueing that in the back of the dress.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
