Weedrobes: Prom Dress Created from Yucca Plant

Photo link

Who knew invasive plant species could be so gorgeous? Artist Nicole Dextras scoured her backyard (and her neighbors') for wearable weeds to comment on environmental issues in the fashion industry, such as the need for sustainable materials. This prom dress was made from Yucca plants found in her neighbor's backyard. Dextras said she was stunned to find that her neighbor found the plants to be a nuisance.

Nicole's ice typography is pretty amazing too.

Wow. I knew how to make a needle and thread from a Yucca leaf, but this dress even has the bouquet! It is very pretty too.

green onions... heh!

Horseradish ties with Green Onions. Both beat Yucca. Although, there are some types of Basil that reseed so fast, you'd think they had rhizomes.
