Duct tape strikes again! This is one of my entries for the state fair this year. Instead of weaving the tape, I adhered it in even rows onto freezer paper, then cut it out with a regular dress pattern. This was not exactly easy to make, because the tape doesn't have give like fabric, so would not take darts or gathers. It would probably be hot, and may not graze the body, but this actually is wearable.

Update: Got a Blue Ribbon!
