coffee filter prom dress

coffee filter prom dress

It never ceases to amaze me how many things you can make with paper. Like prom dresses, for instance.

This prom dress was made by 18-year old St. Charles, MO student Aimee Kick. She wanted something different for her prom and decided to make her own dress out of coffee filters!

From St. Louis Fashion Week, here’s what Aimee had to say about her dress:

“I made the dress out of coffee filters because firstly, I like trying new things. I think there is a lot of potential in the textures and shapes from coffee filters and really wanted to feature them in a way that was elegant and tasteful. The entire dress has been hand and machine sewn, is completely durable and re-wearable. I knew I wanted to make a prom dress that was made from an unconventional material, hopefully a material that I was familiar with and that represented me well. I am a huge connoisseur of coffee and knew that filters would be an appropriate symbol for my general point of view.”

This got me thinking. What about a wedding dress made out of coffee filters? Perfect for a cafe theme wedding, don’t ya think?
