Hello everyone! When I saw this I knew I wanted to do something with my growing collection of plastic bags. And I right away thought "Plastic bag skirt!" and out of curiosity googled it. I came across one at instructables. http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-poufy-skirt-out-of-garbge-bags-and-duct-tap/
So I gave it a shot and realized it would be too short so I added few more layers and ended up with this. Please ignore my post work zombie face it's been a bit busy in the office.

Thank you guys for the compliments!

So I finally wore it out for the first time and oh my gosh it's so warm you wouldn't think plastic bags would be good for that but they are! The skirt made hardly any noise except when I would sit on a chair.
I got a lot of stares but only one person asked if the skirt was made of plastic bags. After I said yes he asked "Why?" I replied "Why not? It's good for the Earth and it's fun to wear a tutu." The look on his face was priceless.
