You’ve Got To See This Little Girl’s Paper Dress Creations

When we were younger, dressing up meant raiding our parents’ wardrobe, so you can imagine how much we love the fancy dress creations of this four year old from the US. With a bit of help from her mum Angie, the little girl, known by her nickname Mayhem, makes dresses from tape, glue and paper (as well as gift bags, foil, toilet paper and the odd silk scarf), all of which are posted on Angie’s Instagram and blog Fashion By Mayhem. We introduce some of our favourites. Images:

Angie wrote about this yellow number, ‘We're calling this one "a request for yet another Taylor Swift dress gone horribly wrong so we changed course and it ended up more fabulous than the inspiration"... Too long of a title??? ;)’
