Oh how I love paper dresses. That one with eye is fantastic! And we have that newsprint paper dress in our collection too!

How do they compare to the dresses created by the Project Runway crew? We'd love to know what you think!

The circumstances of creation are so different that it's really hard to compare Project Runway paper dresses to these 1960s dresses. The one thing I kept thinking about during this episode is that they were using newsprint, which is such a flimsy paper. The 1960s dresses were made out of something more like Tyvek, the product that is used to make mailing envelopes.

It also seemed like both contestants and judges weren't sure if the newsprint should be treated like a textile or as a non-textile with its own properties.

What did you think of the dresses?
