Phone Book Dress!


Almost forgot to share this with you!  Last month my daughter Ally spent about 20 hours designing a San Juan Island Phone Book Dress!!!!  Why would she do this?  For the "Trashion Fashion" Show at the San Juan County Fair! Last year she took first place with her duct tape dress, so she thought she should really step it up with the phone book!

It seriously took hours and hours (with the help of Dan and I folding page after page of yellow pages).  At one point I wasn't sure if she was going to pull it off!!!!  It is always amazing to me how creative kids can be.  She didn't win first prize this year, but I think she did a great job!  Here was her dress in progress:

Lots and lots of FOLDING!!! :)

Lots and Lots of TAPE!

Oooooo-la-la!  Phone Book SHOES!

Almost done!

TA-DA!!!! Done!

****I did actually take a better picture of this with the shoes and bow, but it turned out way to dark. Ugh.

All in all, I think it turned out fantastic and I am so proud of her!  Wonder what she is going to come up with for next year?
