Clutch bag from bridesmaid's dress

I do love a prettily patterned dress - especially if it has a flower print and lace on it!

So when I noticed that a local lady was selling a bridesmaid's dress on behalf of her friend I just knew that I had to give it a new home (and new purpose).

The pattern and lace gave me the idea to make a clutch bag with a bow on the front.

Finished clutch bag:

What it looked like before:

What I liked most was that the dress had been lovingly made by a local seamstress.

You can see more details of this and other refashions at my blog:

Very cute! Bridesmaids dresses can be difficult to reuse. Way to give that dress a new life!
