Canadian student makes her own graduation dress out of old homework

Canadian student makes her own graduation dress out of old homework

Kara Koskowich is going to take the world by storm. Girlfriend just graduated from high school in Canada, and instead of shelling out for a fancy graduation dress, she decided to reuse old homework and post-it notes to make one herself : The dress took almost 75 pieces of paper to make, Koskowich said. She started back in March but, in true teenage style, finished it the night before she needed to wear it. She also broke her sewing machine in the process of putting it together and had to hand stitch the last bits. “For me, it’s not a big, spend your money, you have to look this nice, you have to fit into this mold of grad,” she told the CBC. Koskowich is getting extra credit for her clever homework-as-dress ploy, but her friend Dorothy Graham also did the crafty-recycling thing with plastic bags. They look great, don’t they?
