So some of you might know me from other DIY forums/sites.
If so you've seen this. Posting it again since I'm new here.
I did a sundress out of teabags for class. It was in a display in downtown Orlando for awhile. <3











It smelled SO GOOD! :]

I'll bet it did smell good!

I know it's not for wearing, but the first thing I thought of was...it rains about every afternoon in Orlando...I can just see the tea running down the wearer's legs, leaving a trail!

You know sweet tea is considered "the house wine of the south..."

Did you try to take a hot bath with it! Grin
I really like the effect of the tea through de tea bags on the skirt.
Great job, did you have a good rate for it?

It is very pretty!  I like how taking a common everyday object and repeating a pattern with it really transforms the original (does that make sense?).

I reeeally love this, and vote it for the new British national dress that is to be worn by everyone. Always.

That adds a whole new meaning to *Coffee, Tea....or Me?* You can jump in a pool, add 10 pounds of sugar and it's a pool party/ tea party for 50! lol
