I've been busy this summer working on a dress for the Glam Trash Fashion Show, the annual recycled fashion show here in Taos.  My dress was made out of aluminum can tabs.  I saved tabs for about a year before starting.  I had a lot of friends collecting them for me.  I also told  someone who was passing through town about my project and he sent me close to 1000 tabs in the mail!  The finished dress has over 5500 tabs, and about 3000 of that is just in the ruffles.  I'm  so happy that after a year of collecting and a couple of months of assembling, that I pulled it off.  Here are a couple of pictures of me wearing my pop tab dress at the event:


  1. This is a fantastic dress! I imagine how hard you had to work and for such a long time to get this ready for the show... congratulations! Can I put this pic on my "recycle art and craft" page on FB?

  2. Of course you can share it as long as you give me credit!
