The Möbius Dress proposes an inherently inside-out and outside-in garment.  The Möbius Loop, applied to the body, creates one continuous loop designed to turn inside out as it unravels. Because the Möbius strip is one-sided, one-edged and has no fixed orientation, the Felt material used for the dress also has no hierarchy, no warp and no weft.  Structured only by the body, dress twists and turns to form a continuously evolving surface as it unwinds and intertwines to form a perpetually changing surface in relation to the body.
