Soda tab.....dress!! added pics

So my 14 yr old had a bunch of soda tabs saved up and I looked on google to see how to make jewelry or something out of them

she found this picture


and was "inspired" lol

so I ordered her some supplies from www.theringlord.com


And she googled how to and started putting them together


Once she got a little bit done she had this idea that a whole dress would be even better than just the skirt


But it takes a LOT to do a dress


she worked on the design of the top...mommy added a little more "coverage"


But OMG how cool is this?!?!?


we worked on the lining today...I found this fabric on clearance at Hobby Lobby and it is stretchy purple that matches the rings PERFECT!


And...here she is in it (sorry kinda crappy picture it is raining her so that's our back porch)

Can't forget her date


She plans to wear it to her 8th grade dance next weekend (we are making a lining for it) and then she will also enter it in the 4h clothing contest as a "special occasion" dress (as long as they don't eleminate that category )

Oh I also ordered a blow-up body hanger so it could hang proper since just on a regular hanger is was pulling funny


BTW little siblings are NOT helpful

well....we drink a lot of soda and so do our friends and family....we had everyone saving tabs for us. lol

They really aren't that sharp, and we are putting a fabric lining (basically another dress) underneath, it is see through(ish) by itself...but like a tank top and bike shorts would work too...

Hopefully after this weekend I can add pics with her in it (I didn't want to photo her without the lining)...we also have to do some "sizing" cause it is kind of big right now (our blow up girl has more hiney then my dd)
