My daughter had to make a dress out of recycled materials for her grade 11 Art class. She started by covering the dress form with duct tape (sticky side out) then covering the tape with bits of fabric and ribbons. She then secured the bits down with a layer of clear ‘mailman’ tape. She discovered that the dress was too heavy and shapeless, so she cut off the skirt part and replaced it with a round dollar store tablecloth. To integrate the skirt with the top part she hung a few bits of fabric and ribbons to match the top. The dress turned out FANTASTIC and she hopes to wear it to the next vernissage at the Viva Vida Art Gallery!
