Trash Bag Dress Project

I am making a dress out of trash bags.  My dress won’t be your typical loosely draped, tied up and duct taped trash bag dress.  I won’t be using duct tape at all.  My dress will be white with pink and purple layers. I’ll also be using a “scrunching” technique to create tutu-like ruffles and 2 flowers.  Best of all – no sewing!  I”m going to use a plastic fusion technique to create a custom textile.

As I go along I’ll post some pics and even write a how to article so you can make your own designer trash bag dress.

I’ve already fused together 6 panels of white trash bags and experimented with bubble wrap.   Which, if you are curious looks like the photo below when it is fused with a purple trash bag.

  1. You culd also do a dress. You culd simply cut one end of the trash bag, then ductape the entire trashbag a funky color. After youve done the hard part, slip it on and take one strip of ductape ontop of the overlaped part of the dress to make it fitted. This year im doing mostache ductape and im gonna be a nerd with glasses and a tie… mom said tht shes not paying 40 bucks for a costume im gonna wear once, so i had to get creative.

  2. Hello. Thanks for asking. I’m using wordpress. I’ve tried other platforms but I really like the control wordpress gives me. It looks unique because I’m using the foundation of a template and then heavily modifying it until the original is unrecognizable and it is entirely my own design. I’m actually working on the design today and for the next few weeeks.

  3. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own
    blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S My apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!
