Manolo says, from the Manolo’s internet friend Brad comes this photo.
From this angle, with the good shoes, this dress looks rather nice. It is only when you see the other photos in the Flickr stream and read the description that you realize that something is unusual.
This was a project I started this summer. I began by collecting grocery bags, which I cut into sheets and ironed together to form a fabric, and then I used them to sew this dress, with a design loosely based on a 50s housewife style.
As the Project Runway style fashion exercise this dress succeeds wonderfully, although ultimately, it is little more than the unwearable novelty item.
