Crafty Paper Dresses

I was recently asked to judge a local version of "Project Runway."  All I needed to do was show up.  I didn't know anything about the logistics of the competition.  I was pleasantly surprised when I showed up and learned that the participants were going to be working as teams on their challenges.  I was even more thrilled when I learned that they had to make their creations out of newspaper and tape. 

That's all they could use.

The goal was for the girls to make modest outfits.  After they were divided into teams and sent off to start their tasks, they were thrown a curve ball:  they needed to add a modest bathing suit design to their creations.

I was so impressed with the creations!  I wished I could have turned all of the outfits into real dresses right then and there...I would have bought them all!

Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera.  Darn!  Here are a couple of shots from an I-phone.  I think you can get a good idea of how fun the event was, and how much can be created with paper.

I like all of the thought that went into this dress.  The skirt, the sleeves, the necklace, and the hair bow...a complete look!

Check out this adorable bathing suit!  My favorite part is the bathing cap.  How cute!
