A Project Runway contestant once used this plaid laundry bag as the main material for a dress. It was called the "unconventional challenge", where the contestants shopped at a New York City dollar store.

Who would ever guess its potential as a dress:

Rami Kashou, an expert at draping, created this dress.  I think it's one of the most memorable dresses made on the show. Have a nice day!
