I was just doing some internet perusing and came across an article by Blueprint regarding what to do with the bridesmaids’ dresses after the wedding.  It was most aptly titled, Bridesmaid Revisited. A more appropriate title would’ve been “How to destroy a seemingly decent dress and turn it into something completely hideous”.  But that’s just me.

Seriously…what diva would turn this:

   into this  (on purpose):  
Or this…    
   into this:  

Not quite getting it. Look at the model– she doesn’t get it either.

 I’m thinking, if you’re going to hack the dress, make it useful– make it couture…make it nice.

Other options:

  • Make pillows– reupholster or redesign new throw pillows for your sofa, chair or bed. 
  • Redesign a purse– go lush with the fabric and add a few embellishments.
  • Make a supersexy swimsuit– Please note, this only works with the right type of fabric and texture.

Better yet, donate it.  Give it to the goodwill.  Put it up for auction at a high school.  There are several things you could do that could save you from the regretful madness above.

  • Don’t kill me, but I actually like the first one, both before and after. I’d wear both dresses. The second one looks as though she should own a little house on a prairie somewhere.

  • I am with you they ruined two good dresses. They looked way better before! The first one isn’t horrible but I like it better before the change. 🙂

    I like the first one before and after as well but the second one is horrible before and after and I’m 20 so this is a young womans perspective.
