Cre­ative Wed­ding Dress Ever? Chi­nese woman makes a bridal gown with 40 cement bags

While most wed­ding gowns are made of silk, satin and lace, a woman in north-west Chi­na has impressed mil­lions by cre­at­ing a stun­ning dress with the least expect­ed mate­ri­als.

Tan Lili, 28, pro­duced the entire gown — com­plet­ed with a bridal hat and a lengthy dress train — with 40 dis­card­ed cement bags after using the con­tents to ren­o­vate her house in a vil­lage in Long­nan city.

The tal­ent­ed woman is a farmer and has nev­er attend­ed design school. She said she made the dress ‘on a whim’ on a rainy day.

Tan dropped out of mid­dle school at the age of 18 to start work­ing in the farm lands after her father died of can­cer four years ear­li­er.

She mar­ried her hus­band, Yang Mingfei, in 2012 and had a son togeth­er. The pair had been upgrad­ing their home recent­ly and acquired the bags of con­crete.

It was pour­ing last Wednes­day and Tan could­n’t go down to the fields. Bored, she was inspired by the cement bags lying near her home and decid­ed to trans­form them into a gown like the ones she saw in mag­a­zines.

Pic­tures and video footage shows a proud Tan walk­ing out in the charm­ing woven dress fea­tur­ing an open back design, which she cre­at­ed in three hours.

She uploaded a clip of her dress on social media, where it quick­ly went viral with more than four mil­lion views, accord­ing to local media reports.

I did not expect the over­whelm­ing response online, it’s such a nice sur­prise,’ Tan told video news site Pear Video.

Using noth­ing but her imag­i­na­tion and a pair of skilled hands, Tan has also cre­at­ed beau­ti­ful dress­es with oth­er unusu­al mate­ri­als, includ­ing weeds, grass, flow­ers and news­pa­pers.

I could prob­a­bly get more likes and views online if I were pret­ti­er,’ she told reporters.

The design of the shoul­der pads are amaz­ing,’ one com­ment­ed. ‘This is real­ly impres­sive.’

Very cre­ative and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly at the same time!’ anoth­er said.
