I bride boy swear to their best girlfriends that the bridesmaids dress they wear can probably be worn anytime. But to be honest let's be real, the only life these bridesmaid dresses see are in the back of the closet next to the spiders and moths, if they have that taste. But I am here to fix that. I am going to show you some quick and clever ways that we can actually revamp these wedding dresses and bring them back to life. Now let's check out this bridesmaid's dress here.
I am going to show you a couple of easy quick fixes with some belts that can just change the dress entirely. How about a kimono belt, with a crazy wicked pattern like this, you can actually turn into more of a funkier wear and something that's double sided to turn it into more modern wear, as well. I love going to the vintage store finding a belt that has a little bit more of an embellishment that solid like this and throwing it on as a center piece turning dress into more classic appeal, just like that.
Okay and honestly if you hate the dress altogether, don't be afraid, you can actually just completely just rip it apart, literally into two pieces. If you were to take this dress and bring it to a seam's dress you can have them just separate it, right in the middle and turn this beautiful top into a great bodice, especially since it's already structured you can wear it under a blazer may be even under nice cardigan or you can throw on a waist pant a back zipper and even remove the frill if you want it to lay a little bit more free flow and wolla, You got two simple pieces from a old bridesmaid dress.
And just like this it can even be turned in to an evening gown by just adding a simple slit or my be even taking it into a three quarter just for dinners and drinks may be even something cute and short like a cocktail dress by taking it right about the knee, it's a perfect dress no need to waste. Then we have the pieces like this where you really don't know where to go with that because it already has gone somewhere on its own, so simple.
A dress like this you can either remove the embellishment by weaving, the flowers, the ruffles and could still wear as a fun summary dress, if you really hated that much then use the fabric, use it for throw pillow, Halloween costumes, may be something cute pattern for a kid. Either way this dress should not be wasted. So ladies there you have it. Now that you have given the dress a whole new life, you can actually make it last as long as the marriage.
