The only thing I’ve ever made from duct tape was a wallet and that was the saddest thing ever. When I saw what this teenager did I was dumbfounded. The fact that she made her own evening gown with duct tape is not only impressive, but also very good.

ONE Washington State Teenager won a $10,000 college scholarship by sewing her own prom dress – entirely with duct tape. Sunnyside resident Larissa Leon, 17, won Duck Brand Duct Tape’s Contest “Stuck at Prom” by creating a dress inspired by traditional Mexican Folklorico dresses. “The dress was designed to celebrate my culture, helping me pay homage to my roots,” says Leon, “along with sewing a beautiful prom dress made out of duct tape, something that many of my friends and family thought was impossible. “

Leon said she worked on the 20-pound dress for 163 hours, using 47 rolls of duct tape. She also makes purses, tiaras, earrings and shoes — also with duct tape, she says. “I knew I wanted to do something really big, something colorful,” she said. “Not just a dress; I wanted it to represent me and be a part of me because I didn’t just want to wear a regular old prom dress.”
