"Mum can you make a dress out of sweet wrappers?".......


This is the Malteser dress I made for my daughter's prom in july.. 

It took alot of sewing, a lot of pinning and a lot of eating enough maltesers to have the 174 packets needed to complete the dress..... I was heartily sick of the sweet by the time I'd finished!!! 
                                                    

                     
                
She was pleased with the end result and I was  a stone heavier!

Oh my! That dress is amazing and your daughter looks gorgeous in it:) By the way, if you need anyone to help with your next creation, I'm really good at eating sweets....a Lindor dress maybe?!

Awesome! This is such a great idea! Reminds me of when I was a kid and we used to skrink crisp packets under the grill to make into jewellery!
