The materials i used to make the dress are:
-15 cereal boxes (all sizes)
-30 candy wrappers (different types)
-Needle and string (or sewing machine
Step 1: First step: Dress pattern
Read and follow the directions on the pattern bag.
The simple steps to making the white under dress are:
1st. Cut the patterns out of the paper
2nd. Cut the strips of the dress to the length you would like it to be.
3rd. Pin the strips of the dress pattern to the white material
4th. Cut out the dress patterns with the white material under neither.
Step 2: Step two: Putting the under dress together
(On the piece of the pattern it shows what piece belong together. Then just sew along the lines to make the under dress.)
Step 3: Step Three: Finding the recycled items
For the cereal boxes, -Cut the covers off (The front of the cereal box) Then cut the covers into strips.
For the wrappers they can be any type of wrappers for example: Candy wrappers, chocolate wrappers, or star-burst. I picked candy wrappers because I had more and they have more colour to them.
Step 4: Step Four: Sewing the wrappers on
Step 5: Step Five: Sewing the cereal boxes on
For the length I have my under dress I needed to make two rows going around the dress of cereal boxes to cover the under dress. Also on my dress I had different brands of cereal boxes and decided the dress would look better if they weren't the same cereal boxes. Now the dress has different colours and characters all over the bottom.
Step 6: Last Step: Last Looks
One of the touch ups I had was taping the candy wrappers down with clear tape. This makes sure none of the wrappers rip off or stick out. Also I fixed a broken belt and added to the dress to make it more cute.
I hope you like the dress. It took me some time to finally finish the dress, and I'm very proud on how it turned out!
