Always a bridesmaid...

It's fun to go shopping in your own closet for new refashions. I found the bridesmaid dress I wore in my brother's wedding.  It was stashed away in my mom's closet, actually. I was much larger then, but I did like the dress. As far as "bridal party" gowns are concerned I thought it was quite lovely...

It didn't fit too well, though, so I made a few changes and updated it to a shirred bodice sun dress.

For my full tutorial on the process, feel free to see my original post :)


Happy Refashioning!

Fantastic Inspiration for all bridal party dresses. I am certain that I have a few formals lurking in the sewing room closet. You and the dress are bpth lovely after your transformations! Thanks for sharing.

Great save for all the bridesmaid dresses out there that we had to buy and never wear again. Very pretty and your weight loss is amazing!
