Loo-ture: woman spends three months making Britain’s first dress completely out of toilet rolls
A woman has caused a right stink by making what is thought to be Britain’s first dress made out completely out of toilet paper.
Giving a new meaning to LOO-ture, Angela French, 46, used more than ten rolls to finish her flush frock.
Unemployed Angela, from Hull, East Yorks, claims it is England’s first robe made entirely out of loo paper.
She is now going to put the dress up for auction on eBay and donates the proceeds to local food banks.
Proud Angela said: “It is a beautiful dress.
“It is completely hand-made and hand-stitched so that nothing can fall out.
“It is like a wedding dress. I don’t think there is one like it in the whole of England.
“At first people were sceptical when I said that I have made a dress out of toilet roll.
“People don’t believe it, but when they see it they love it.
“I am really proud of it and I don’t really want to part with it, but it is all for a good cause.”
Angela took inspiration for her privy plan from an annual American competition, where some of the dresses sell for as much as £3000.
She previously made a dress six years ago, but only had time recently to make another one after breaking her ankle in the summer.
All the proceeds from the online auction will go to the food bank at the Endike Community Centre where she used to work.
Angela said: “Everything has to be fully made out of toilet roll – there can’t be any cheating at all.
“I was going to make a handbag out of toilet roll to match it, but just need to find a bit more time.”
“There are a lot of people out there who don’t have anything special to wear for Christmas Day – and this could be it.
“They would be princess of the ball for the day.”
