Trashion on the Runway: Upcycled Fashion Inspiration

trashion dress
This sodapop dress is super fun! I dig how they used the cans to make the skirt and the pop tabs to construct the bodice and her matching headband. Those curly cans are fun and flirty, but they look a little bit dangerous, too! It doesn’t look like they used anything to dull the sharp edges. Do you guys have any ideas on how to make this garment as safe as it is adorable?
