Just call me Tink!

Once upon a time I was a bridesmaid for my best friend. The dresses she chose were gorgeous. Elegant and flattering on all eight of her bridesmaids! We looked like grecian goddesses!

Although the dress could be worn again to any black tie event, invitations to such formal events are pretty rare for me these days. So today I decided to upcycle it into something I’d wear more. And with another lot of weddings coming up I’m pretty sure it will come in handy!

How I Upcycled an Old Bridesmaid Dress in 4 Steps:

  1. Removed the “sash”

  2. Gathered and tucked the silk chiffon fabric under the main skirt to give a bubble effect. Pinned into place

  3. Hand sewed the silk chiffon to the waistband of the corset

  4. Carefully Trimmed off the excess silk chiffon fabric


And just like that I’ve managed to turn myself into Tinkerbell 🧚‍♀️😆! But I think I’ll get a lot more mileage out of it now!

I’m quite pleased with this quick fix.
