Researchers Create an Eco-Friendly, Water-Soluble Dress

Sheffield Hallam University researchers have created a biodegradable, water-soluble dress that melts away with water. These eco-friendly garments however, don't completely dissolve. The water-soluble dress slowly disintegrates part by part, allowing for five different looks to come from a single dress.

The one downfall of the water-soluble dress is that it fails to sustain itself in the rain. There is a definite price to pay to be eco-friendly, but I don't know whether I'd risk rain on my big day for this water-soluble dress!
