the dress project

A few years ago I bought a little dress while on a girl’s getaway in Nashville, TN. It was cotton and comfy and perfect for the summer. Over the years it’s gone from being something I’ve worn out to dinner, to a bikini cover-up at the beach and pool, to something that I mainly wear while lounging around the house. It’s showing wear and tear, and frankly, just isn’t that flattering on me anymore. So this weekend, I decided to see what else I could make out of it.

I cut it in sections on each seam and immediately decided to make a pillow out of the skirt. Since it was already sewn on two sides, it took only minutes! And, it just so happens to work really well with the colors in the living room. Nice! I love finding new uses for old things!

I already have ideas for the smaller pieces of the dress and will definitely post those projects soon!
