A New Kind of Fabric

Can anyone guess what this dress is made out of? I'll give you a hint, it is something all of us have in our house.

P h o n e b o o k. Wow. I had a hard time believing it myself! It's gorgeous though, isn't it? The talent behind this dress is Jolis Paons, who made this dress out of papers from the phonebook for a class assignment. From his intricate details, you can tell clearly that he has put a lot of effort in this assignment, from pleating, to sewing the "fabric".


I would love to wear this dress, but due to my clumsy finesse, I would probably rip it within seconds.

A while ago, I also stumbled upon a fellow DeviantART artist, Aimee Kick, an 18 year old girl who made her prom dress out of coffee filters, and had a matching necklace made out of none other than coffee beans by her dad to go along with the dress.


In her description, she mentioned that she tea-dyed the filter paper, dried them with a hair dryer, hand stitching, machine sewing..etc. How rad! Click here to see more pictures of her beautiful dress.

The first paper dress was made by Scott Paper Company in 1966, and costing only one dollar. However, it was shapeless and not very attractive. It's amazing to see how many young talents there are out there now, creating these masterpieces, out of recyclable materials!

Has anyone seen the episode of Project Runway, Season 6, Episode 5? That week, the designers' challenge was to create a clothing item, made out of newspaper. It was an interesting espisode, but I won't go into detail or post any pictures, as I don't want to spoil it any further for those of you who haven't been keeping up!

A [url=http://www.treegrid.com/scroll-table.html]scroll table[/url] tabletable row runs horizontally in a line across a table tabletable and is normally made up of several boxes with information [url=http://www.treegrid.com/rows-table.html]rows table[/url]. When you draw a table tabletable on a piece of paper, you are creating columns and rows rowsrows. Each horizontal line of boxes is a different table tabletable row. Often, the row at the top of the [url=http://www.treegrid.com/web-grid.html]web grid[/url] is used to create headers, which tell the reader what information can be found in the boxes below it, also known as the column. For example, the first three boxes in the first row of a table tabletable in a teacher’s attendance book might read "Student's Name," "Present," and "Absent."


Table rows are commonly used in HTML to create tables and to format a web page. The HTML tag for a [url=http://www.treegrid.com/grid-data.html]grid data[/url] is . Within each row, the tag must be added for each new box the user wants to create in that row. A new table row must be created to move down to the next line [url=http://www.treegrid.com/sort-table.html]sorting table[/url] and start a set of boxes below the first. This example shows a table with three table rows and three table columns.
