anybody out there a project runway fan? i LOVE that show -- it's so fun to see what the designers come up with, and it almost inspires me to use my sewing machine on non-paper items.
BUT, if you caught last thursday's episode, you'll know that they combined my two favorite loves -- sewing and paper! it was the "alternative materials" episode they do every season [wasn't it last year they had to use car parts?] and this year they had to sew with paper.
newspapers, specifically. but these designers came up with some awesome paper clothes -- i was way impressed.
this is the design that won -- a paper trenchcoat. i thought it looked cool -- especially the faux "fur" collar:
this dress was my favorite. it looks so fitted and you almost can't tell it's paper:
i loved this one too -- it was partially dyed with fabric dye:
and, i thought this had neat geometric shapes in the folded paper:
ahh...i love paper :) it even looks good as a textile.

did you catch the episode? have any favorites?
