Newspaper dress

20 Apr

I was making patterns out of newspaper when I came across an article in the arts section of about Japanese Lolita fashion (my favorite Harajuku fashion) coming to America to be displayed in a museum, I started thinking about making a new dress, but I was currently broke so I didn’t want to buy more material, then it hit me that I could make a dress out of newspaper! I mixed flour with water and paper mached myself like a piñata then blow dried the paper strips in layers. I made the skirt in the same way, but made paper flowers and hot glued them as a trim. The back of the dress laces up like a corset! 🙂
