State of Dress

Robin Barcus Slonina’s artwork blog first caught my eye on Yahoo Shine. I learned more about her State of Dress project, where she is constructing models of dresses to represent each state. The dresses are made out of unique materials; you’ll see everything from pinecones to trash bags in the images below. I’ve posted the first eight dresses and can’t wait to see the next 42! Follow her dress-making journey on her website here!

New York: Garbage Dress

Nevada: Casino Chip Dress

Wyoming: Willow Dress

Wisconsin: White Pine Dress

Iowa: Prairie Dress

Minnesota: Corn Dress

Illinois: Red Dress (made out of 28 red dresses from Chicago thrift stores)

Maine: Pinecone Dress
