A woman named Emily Seilhamer decided to create this dress with candy wrappers. Of course she didn't do it just to do it, there's a story behind it. She got inspired from the day she met her husband. This beautiful and colorful dress took a long time to finish but it seems it was worth every second!
Meet Emily Seilhamer!
She has been saving Starburst wrappers diligently for 4 years.
After enough were saved I organized them into colors, ironed them, folded them into links, and made candy wrapper chains.
With the use of elastic thread, she was able to sew the links together into a “fabric”.
Of course there is a story behind this project.
When she met her husband, he offered her a pack of Starburst
As his favorite candy he began to save grocery bags full of wrappers for her.
The dress had a nice spot next to the gift table at our wedding almost 2 years ago!
