Recycle, Reuse: floral dress into skirt

I enjoy reconstructing items in my closet to give them new life, and of course to give myself a new wardrobe to rock. For this post, it’s this dress:

floral marilyn monroe inspired dress

I had it custom-made to wear to our friends’ wedding a few years back. daryll-odessa-wedding-cebu daryll-odessa-wedding-reception-cebu daryll-odessa-wedding-2012

But then after, I only got to wear the dress just once more and that was for our family portrait.div-gon-family-portrait

So, I recently decided to restyle the dress into a skirt. And a few snips and cuts, the dress is now a skirt…! I removed the bodice and shortened them hem.

I’ll be posting an OOTD for this skirt when I get the chance to wear it.

How about you? Do you have a recycle-restyle story to share?

    i’m thinking of shortening a bridesmaid dress i had made too but i haven’t really decided yet coz it’s not the kind of material that you can wear casually. i don’t know. we’ll see.

    i’m excited to see what you’re gonna do to revamp that dress.

      I just settled with a skirt.
      And I’d love to hear what you finally decide to do with that bridesmaid dress of yours. I think short skirts/dresses can easily be dressed down by pairing them with casual tops or outerwear and flat shoes or sandals.
      Thanks!
