A woman who made a loom band dress made out of elastic bands is celebrating after selling it for £170,100 on eBay.

We're in total shock.

Our handy handbag economics calculator has worked through the numbers and we've found that you can buy a 8 whole Louis Vuitton NN 14 PM Show Girl bags, one of the most expensive bags at £19,900 a pop (Louisvuitton.com), for the price of this dress.

And there's still spare pocket money left over.

We know which option we'd go for...

NN 14 PM Show Girl, $31,500



The loom band dress was listed by Helen Wright of North Wales, who came up with the idea after her daughter started making the elastic band bracelets.

Being the brains behind the operation, Helen enlisted her out-of-work friend to do the making.

Made from 20,000 elastic bands, the two mums were only hoping for £50 for the dress so we're sure they're beside themselves with this profit.

We're sure this won't be the only dress they'll be selling...
