This is one of my favorites from the Jean Ball Gown shoot at Cape Lookout State Park, Oregon. For those who have not met this dress, it is made from 13 pairs of old torn jeans.

This dress is for sale here: [link]

Great work! Who would have ever thought of creating such a unique dress out of blue jeans!

The amazing part of the dress, I feel, is that the dress itself seems to fit together perfectly, and every fold seeming natural and beautiful rather than wrinkled and annoying. The neutral color of the background help make you and your dress"pop out" from the image, so to speak. The vibrance of the dress draws viewers eyes towards the middle, and creates a colorful expanse for our eyes to enjoy.

However, I feel that to portray the dress to its full potential you could have had stronger, more firm photos. Many of the photos you have given seem to portray the same thing from nearly the same angle.
What do you think?

This dress is so cool. If I ever find enough jeans and such to make something like this, that would be fantastic.

13 pairs of jeans made this? I think I might take up sewing lessons to reuse old clothes now.
