Amber’s multiple sclerosis prevented her from working. She leaped at the chance to enter a wedding gown competition because her free time was driving her crazy.
Do you remember ever seeing toilet paper wedding dresses? You have never seen anything like this.
You’ll occasionally stumble onto a gorgeous wedding gown made entirely of toilet paper. A mother from North Richland Hills, Texas, has taken this concept a step further by using toilet paper to construct an exquisite gown.
Amber Mills, a mother who works full-time at home, created a gorgeous bridal gown out of toilet paper.
Not just any toilet paper is being used here. She is using both more contemporary white toilet paper and retro pink Charmin tissue from the 1970s.
Although it doesn’t seem like toilet paper has the strength to build a dress, Mills has discovered a way to do it. She rolls it out into strips, joins it with tape and glue, and produces a material that resembles fabric.
See how she turns a regular household object into a useful cloth for a bridal gown in her technique at 0:28. Then, just as she would with any other article of clothing, she sews the completed item together using a needle and pink thread.
For Mills, creating bridal gowns is more than simply a hobby. She will have the chance to feel useful once more.
According to Mills, she has multiple sclerosis, as she revealed previously.
“I was unable to continue working, and I began to feel fairly depressed.”
While she was browsing the web one day, that changed. A contest to see who could create the best clothing out of toilet paper was discovered by Mills. She felt immediately motivated, as if this was her chance to change her perspective.
She participated in the contest “because of my multiple sclerosis and other health challenges, I had become emotionally defeated in life and had a lot of problems.”
It was a big adjustment for Mills, who had been in the Marine Corps before, to have to deal with all of this pain and uncertainty.
In order to succeed, Mills made the decision to take further steps.
She learned how to transform it into a substance that could be used for the bodice, as she shows at 0:50. Before submerging the remaining portion of the roll in boiling water, Mills separates the toilet paper from the cardboard roll.
After boiling the toilet paper, she filters it and uses a hand mixer to blend it with a lot of glue:
“It’s just like mashed potatoes.”
The next section requires a lot of time to finish. At 1:40, Mills sits down with the cooked toilet paper and carefully places it into a mold to create lace. She uses this method to construct each piece, investing a total of six hours.
Her months of work on the toilet paper bridal gown paid off on picture day.
Her one-of-a-kind technique of boiling toilet paper was used to produce each and every one of the gorgeous lace ornamentation on the top. These particulars go perfectly with the toilet paper frills she made to decorate the dress’ lower half. The end product—which has nothing to do with toilet paper—is truly gorgeous as can be seen at 1:51.
Look at all the frills Mills had to hand-sew onto the train of this gorgeous dress.
Mills finished third in the bridal dress competition, which is a noteworthy achievement.
