Actually, when I first heard about it, it was on Yahoo and the article said the girl had been given one million pounds by her dad and she had chosen to stitch the bank notes on a dress. Comments said it was either a hoax or a very selfish thing to do. Geesh! Talk about researching your story! Even this humble blogger can do a better job!
But back to topic: it does make for an original dress. Not something I would wear everyday, but still, it's an interesting design. I also love the idea of printing your own pattern on silk: that is not something I have learned in Fashion School, but I would love to know how to do it.
Good luck to Hannah Cooper in her Fashion career!
