New wedding dresses can cost a fortune, however, if you’re clever enough you can save hundreds if you make your own. A teenager has proven just that, using one key material, TOILET ROLL.
The dress was created by fifteen-year-old Rachel Lefleur, who spent a purse-friendly £30 on making the dress, with £10 of that spent on toilet paper.
The teen started making the gown last year for her GCSE coursework and features a bodice, sweetheart necklace, and 19 rolls of Cushelle forming roses across the dress.
Speaking to The Sun, Lefleur said: “I’d never made a dress before but I was inspired by watching images of American toilet paper clothing contests on YouTube and thought I’d give it ago.
“It became a real labour of love and I couldn’t even guess how many hours I spent on it. But I’m so pleased with the finished result.”
