Recycled bridesmaid party dress

Added Jan 5, 2008

Bear, Delaware, ...






This was a bridesmaid’s dress belonging to my mom (from an aunt’s wedding) that I recycled (with her permission) to make a dress for New Year’s Eve. The original dress is the long one with sleeves, and the one-shoulder shorter dress is my remake.

Material Notes

taffetta, lace, ribbon





My mom for giving me the dress, knowing full well I’d chop it to bits.
