It doesn’t matter whether you hail from part of the world that says “soda” or “pop” to come to realization that this dress is cool. Regan Kerr of George Washington High School in Aurora Colorado spent five months sewing 5114 soda can tabs into a one-of-a-kind prom dress and that doesn’t count the 2 years it took to collect all the tabs. Regan made it clear that she didn’t actually drink all those sodas but had help from friends and family. I love seeing examples of truly creative reuses for materials that too often end up discarded. The simple gown has an understated design aesthetic that contrasts nicely from the intricacy of the tabs themselves.
If you want to make your own fashion statement with soda can tabs there are plenty of videos on youtube that can show you how to make anything from jewelry to handbags. Click here to see more about Regan’s dress.
