I'm proud to kick us off with what is probably my favorite refashion project to date! Two Halloweens ago, I made a Cinderella costume (the pink gown her evil step-sisters ruined, not the blue one from her Fairy Godmother) out of an old wedding dress and two dated bridesmaid dresses - all of which were free to me!
I layered the dark pink skirt over the white skirt. I adjusted the bodice of the dark pink dress to fit me. The light pink dress was used for all the details - the bows and the sashes. From the remnants of white, I made the shoulder straps and a little bow for my store-bought headband ($1). I also made a necklace with some beautiful blue glass beads ($3). Throw in some thrifted pink shoes ($4), and that comes to a grand total $8! Try finding a deal like that in a costume shop!
You can check out my original post here! And I'm looking forward to seeing all of your costumes!
