The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Pattern Changing Dress

Craft & Design


Check out this dress with pockets for felt-tip markers that bleed out to make a colored pattern on the dress. Wash it and re-design it every time you wear it! Fernando Brizio‘s renewable dress at the “Flexibility: Design in a Fast-Changing Society” exhibit, via Core77.

    This is neat but isn’t it a little bit NON-green? I mean that seems like a waste of ink to wear and wash and re-ink etc. etc.
    But hey people are thinking outside the box…I wonder..does it bleed through onto your undergarments or onto your skin??

    That’s pretty cool. It reminds me a lot of something my son did when he was two. ;)
