dress made from toilet paper

Here it is! My final project for SYTYCS! I can't believe I made it to the finals! Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that has voted for me. This week's theme is contestant's choice. Ooooh yeah. My entry for the competition was my dress made from a car, so I HAD to do another trashion dress as my finale.

I choose toilet paper.

This is what toilet paper looks like after it's dyed. It gets hard, falls off the cardboard tube, and then you have to carefully peel it apart. After this process, the sewing could begin. I had a long weekend. Haha! {If anyone was wondering, this dress is 100% sewn. No glue or tape was harmed in the making of this dress.}

And a huge thanks to this little pocket-sized model, Michelle. Or Chelly Belly as I like to call her. {That's right baby sis. I called you Chelly Belly on the internets. You are beautiful.}

Welcome everyone from Mommy By Day Crafter By Night! I'm happy you came my way! If you liked this dress, check out my other designs HERE.

I can honestly say I never thought I'd be posing with a roll of toilet paper on my blog at any point :)

So incredible what you can make out of practically nothing.

I love the irony of a tp dress and rain boots. Could you imagine if it rained!? Ha ha.

Still, this dress is pretty spectacular! Great entry for the finals!
