Kim says:

So cool! I loved this series! I would’ve liked to see the backs of the dresses as well.

lazysaturdays says:

I’ll let you in on a little secret. You don’t see the backs of the dresses because these dresses were not made for the models shown here. All the dresses were fit to one girl for a runway show. If I had all ten models there for the photo shoot, then I could have shown the backs. But I only had these two darlings, which were smaller than most of the other models so the dresses were too big on them. In photo shoots, if the clothing doesn’t fit the model, wardrobe will clip the back of the apparel so it looks like a perfect fit. That’s essentially what I did for many of these dresses. So that’s why you don’t see the backs :)

Hello, I’m Allisyn I’m starting Yr12 and I am doing Art,I love your dresses and I was just wondering how you stuck the dresses together. My favorites are the Coffe filter and Toliet Paper dresses. I would like to do something like this but the materials I want to use are out there and I have never seen them used.
Thank you

Hi Allisyn! I’m happy you like these! I started with a dress i made made from muslin, then applied the rest of the materials by either sewing or glueing. It will take practice. My first dresses were awful! But you’ll get the hang of it! Have fun and don’t get frustrated if the first try doesn’t work out. Many of these dresses are different from my original designs. I’d love to see what you come up with!
