Dress out of newspaper?

Last night on project runway the designers had an interesting challenge of designing a garment out of newspaper. Hmmmm.... pretty interesting. Here is what they came up with.

This is my favorite. I love this coat!

Wonder what I would come up with if I had to make a newspaper garment. I don't think I'll be making anything for my little daughter with this fabric choice. She will just end up eating it!

Can't wait to see next weeks episode.



  1. We only have basic cable so I don't get to watch the initial show. I have been watching it on Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to catch this episode as the dresses are intriguing. I wonder whether they use interfacing or not and if they sew or glue the newspaper. Maybe it depends on the application. Harkens back to the paper dresses that came out in the 60's.

  2. They came up with some cute stuff! Thanks for sharing.
