This little girl and her mother have been making dresses out of paper and tape, and the results will amaze you. Here is an interview with the mother, Angie, via The Huffington Post:
It became clear Angie’s daughter (she calls her “Mayhem”) was more interested in fashion than the average 4-year-old. Mayhem shunned her store-bought princess dresses and started wrapping herself with scarves and sheets creating her own styles.
Then one day Angie got tired of finding her clothes in Mayhem’s toy box and suggested they make a dress out of paper. Mayhem loved the idea and they haven’t stopped creating paper dresses since.
How much is done by you and how much is done by your daughter?
The ideas are pretty much a 50/50 split, but Mayhem constructs a lot more than most people would probably believe. That’s one of the best things about this project, I see her learning new skills every single day. At this point, she knows exactly how many sheets of construction paper she needs to make herself a top and a bottom. She can lay the entire thing out and tape it together all by herself. Definitely, the more complex designs have more of my time invested, but she’s literally always beside me learning something new if she’s not tearing or taping or gluing while I am.
Do you have an example of a dress she constructed on her own?
She made the dress below entirely by herself. I wasn’t even home and she couldn’t wait to show it to me and have me photograph it.
