so last night i participated in project goodwill. i was given $100 to find whatever i wanted at goodwill and make it into a blue-carpet look. there were 7 designers that competed and 4 judges. all in all it was a fun experience and im glad i did it. but i was totally amazed at what some of the other designers came up with. one of the designers made a skirt from pattern pieces that she pleated and then her bodice was made out of leather boots. another designer used woven VHS tape (thats right she tore out the tape from old videos and wove it together) for some of her fabric, she also used part of a basketball for a hat and part of a suitcase for her dress.
my design was too safe and not as creative. i used a men's suit jacket for the bodice and bed sheets and a linen blanket for the skirt. i also made the matching clutch and a bracelet out of a bath mat.
(if you want to see the other designs they should be posting them up on facebook soon - under "the goodwill guy fort worth")
