Upcycling a Bridesmaid Dress
{I am pretty crafty and just pretty too.}

About ten years ago I was in a wedding.  My MJ married her tall boyfriend and she asked me take part of the wedding a few shorts months after Lovely O was born.  I still have the dress.

Or I did.

I was cleaning out my closet and the dress was still hanging up in its plastic bag.  It was sort of sad because I didn't want to add it to the Goodwill pile yet I knew that I'd never have any reason to wear it again.

I hung it back up and thought on it.

Thought on it a bit more.

THEN I cut it up.

In pieces.

Pretty scary.

BUT then I made something beautiful out of those pieces and I am giving it to the bride as a keepsake of her special day.  Something that she may even want to give to her daughter when she gets older.
