Creating the Newspaper Dress

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Creating things doesn't always go the way I plan.

Sometimes it's an absolute mess and doesn't work at all. It will often look like an explosion of fabric, glue, glitter, and flowers with a few odd bits strewn about for good measure.

Other times, it works . . . this always leaves me pleasantly surprised.

This newspaper dress just came together. There was no mistakes that caused me to have to restart.

No crying in anguish because something broke.

No feeling heartbroken because it 'just doesn't look how I pictured it."

Turns out, making a dress out of newspaper is actually the easiest dress I ever made. If you're looking for something creative to make, try this!

I think you'll be happy with what you'd make- I know I was!
