Short on cash, long on creativity, teen makes soda tab prom dress

Brie Fainblit wasn’t voted prom queen at the Highland High prom. But the Palmdale senior who made her own dress out of soda can tabs felt like the belle of the ball.

Fainblit lives with her mother, who is disabled, and her aunt, who works two part-time jobs to support them. She began her soda tab project in September, knowing that money was way too tight for a prom dress.

    This video is lacking…just so fleeting! Biggest upset for most of us is the lack of seeing the(dress) outfits up close; perhaps while hanging. Very Poor job
