What to do with those old dresses that no longer fit, or are out of style?
Transform to other clothing items
One of the simplest things to do with a dress is cutting to create different items, like a skirt or a top....
Kids dresses are great to upcycle into bags as you can keep the basic shape and just enclose the bottom of the dress.
I did that with a couple of my girls sundresses that they grew out of:
Use the fabric for something completely different
You could just use the fabric - as I did on this money box that I made from one of my girl's old Hello Kitty Dresses:
I used other sundresses my girls had grown out of to make this cute fabric origami bag.
I also made a pencil and notebook folder from a pretty kids dress, using the left over parts in the gift wrapping!
I liked that I could use the buttoned up front part for an extra feature and pocket on the folder.
Have you ever upcycled or refashioned a dress?
