The thing I hate with formal dresses is that you can rarely re-wear them over and over again. For a few reasons:
- Everyone will have seen you in the same dress you were in at the last event
- Formal dresses can rarely be accessorised to look like a totally new dress
- There’s always a chance that someone else will be wearing the same dress as you!
So with my sister-inlaws wedding coming up I had a decision to make – What the hell was I going to wear?!? Pondering on this question for months I had a light bulb moment! I’d wear my wedding dress!
And no I’m not going to be that gal 🙂 Of course I’d alter it first! So with a little bit of creativity I took on the task to re-upcycle my wedding dress.
First thing I decided to do was to dye it! What I had in mind was to have a bit of a watercolour effect happening.
Second was to reconstruct it a little so it would not only look different but would fit better! And I added a maroon lining which gave it a nice finishing touch.
From Bed Sheet….
To Re-upcycled Dress 🙂
I decided to reconstruct the dress to make it look slightly different to my wedding dress which was so badly constructed in the first place! I also decided that I wanted it naturally dyed to give a slight watercolour effect.
Up-cycling to the MAX!
