Every once in a while, I see things and my inner crazy child breaks loose and takes over. I saw that duck tape and I just had to make a dress out of it! Yes, the dress in the picture is a steam punk outfit made out of duck tape for the sewing impaired. I do sew but every once in a while, I decide to use a different medium.

The skirt is a simple A-line skirt made out of wood grained duck tape that ran from waist to almost ankle length. The over skirt/bustle is made of a beautiful bright purple and is complete with gathers and pleats. The bodice is made of a beautiful galaxy pattern that ran up and down.
From a distance, the finished product appears to be a vinyl because it reflects light and is quite shiny. I got a ton of complements when I wore it to a wild and crazy event. I had a bunch of questions concerning its construction.
