“Always a bridesmaid never a bride” isn’t a phrase to frown upon when you’ve got a closet full of dresses ripe for reinvention. A clever and creative crafter wouldn’t dare give a dress a single spin…we harness our imagination, dream up a stylish lace update and let inspiration win. Grab your trusty scissors and transform formal into fun, wearable fashion.
To create, chop your maxi to the desired length. If fabric frays- add a hem, ours was polyester so no hem needed. Grab a lace tee or tank and secure with pins along the neckline of the dress. Double your thread and stitch the lace shirt to the dress, removing pins as you go.
P.S. - All this wedding talk is getting me excited to see the new movie “Bachelorette” starring Kirsten Dunst…a perfect reason to pop on your new black lace dress for a girls night!
