Prom is one thing about High School that everyone loves. Girls, specifically, start planning for the night in full flow from when they get to know about it. What dress should they wear? What design should it be? Are just a couple of the questions going through their minds. Here we bring the story of a creative girl named Elizabeth Rasmuson, who made her own prom dress in a unique way that left everyone astounded.
Elizabeth Rasmuson was a normal school girl like everyone else. When she got to know about the prom night and how she could dazzle and astound everyone, she set forth designing her own unqiue dress. Yes, you heard it right.
Elizabeth wanted to test her creativity and come up with an idea that would make her stand out in the scores of all other participants in the prom. The prom had their whole batch coming over and she wanted to adorn a dress that would be unique.
In her search for creativity she stumbled across something on the internet that amazed her. Elizabeth said, "I heard about somebody making a dress out of duct tape or something one time so I just was like that's something cool."
Inspired by what she had come across the internet and motivated by her creativity, Elizabeth decided it was time to implement her idea. Her idea was to make a dress out of gum wrappers, yes you read that right, and wear it with her date to prom.
Once she was decided on her idea to make a dress out of gum wrappers, she chose Five Gum as the coveted wrapper for her dress. She said that she really like the colors and hoped that the dress would look fantabulous once it was made.
Elizabeth said that she started with the process as soon as she got to know about prom night because she knew that the dress would take time to make. She had constant motivation from her mother, but the start was the most difficult period.
Elizabeth had done her research prior to starting the process and knew just how to tackle the task. She utilized a blend of iron interfacing, mastered quilting techniques and used a layer of vinyl to finish so that there were no wrappers hanging out.
Everyone who hears this story for the first time wants to know just how many wrappers in took for Elizabeth to get the whole dress ready. Elizabeth mentions that she did have a track of wrappers but lost count early in the process when she had gone through 200 wrappers.
The dress was finally ready before prom and looked brilliant on Elizabeth. Elizabeth wore the dress before her prom and it looked perfect on her as the size was a brilliant fit. All aspects were well covered and it was a job well done.
Elizabeth had been a considerate girlfriend while making the dress and had made a cute waistcoat out of the clothing for her boyfriend as well. The boyfriend was literally surprised and happy to see it and appreciated her efforts.
Elizabeth's mom had supported her through the challenge and was really proud when she got to know that Elizabeth had made the final piece. She said that every girl wore the same dress for prom and it was good to see her daughter innovate.
In came the day of the prom and Elizabeth and her boyfriend looked perfect in their outfits. They stole the show at the prom and it was evident that they were the deserved King and Queen for the night in their school.
Elizabeth was the real star of the night in prom as everyone got to know the dedication she had showed to design her own dress. Her story was an inspirational one and many could learn from how dedicated she had been to achieving what she had desired.
Elizabeth wrapped up the deal by saying that this was it for wrappers and that she does not want to try it out again. She said she had fun during the experience, but some things look good only once in life.
Although she said no to any future clothing made of wrappers, she did mention that a new design was out for the 5 gum and it was black. She really liked the color and you never know, she might as well try it out on her next excursion.
