Earth Day Project: Men's Shirts to Strapless Dress
Added Apr 18, 2011
New York, New Yo...
How Joyful is this project? In honor of Earth Day, we asked BurdaStyle member Howjoyful to create a recycled project— and we’re in love with this summer dress! Made from our Strapless Tea Length Gown pattern, howjoyful transformed this would-be wedding gown into a sassy day dress.
Joy has been known to create many savvy recycled projects.
She even created her own gorgeous wedding gown! How lovely!

What are you making for Earth Day?
Joy used a 6-XL men’s plaid shirt for the skirt and a medium-sized denim shirt for the bustier.
