    This is quite a dress! I am a seamstress in a bridal shop and I have never seen one like this. The detail is amazing and when I found out what it was made of....it's a pretty dress.

    Someone has too much time on their hands. I don't like the short part in the front.

    ....she, whomever she is, designed it, but did she craft it or have a crew of minions doing the tedious work of gluing, whatever TP.....groom's name John?

    That is a gorgeous dress regardless of the materials. Being made of TP makes it truly art. I can't imagine having that much talent.

    That is one amazing dress! I saw a dress at a Mancuso Quilt show made out of sugar bags, by Domino Sugar. They are truly works of at!

    Oh my. I had to laugh at the statement, 'it may look like a normal bridal dress'. Uh no it doesn't. I would die if my daughter came down the aisle in a dress that low in the front and short in the front. But then, I don't have a daughter :-)

    Wouldn't have far to reach when she went to the ladies room! This would be a Las Vegas wedding dress!

    Well at least there will be plenty of tissue to wipe all the tears away.

    The comments made me laugh!

    Wonder how tear-resistant that dress is?

    OOH LA LA! Sure to raise eyebrows. Too bad it's made of TP!

    Does your husband normally peruse the bridal pages? Or perhaps you took advantage of a big sale on toilet paper at Walmart, and he is looking for another use for it?

    Anyhoo, it's a hoot. Have seen a lot of duct-tape dresses, and some paper dresses made from old newspaper, plastic wrap, soda can flip-tops etc., but I gotta say TP takes the prize.

    If you decide to make a TP dress for yourself please post it!

    LOL Sue,

    He found it on The Blaze, a new site he reads daily. He sends me all kinds of interesting stories and pictures.

    To make a dress that will fit me, we might need a truckload of TP. I am not exactly Twiggy here.
