Tried my hand at this a while back & thought I would share the photos.
Tony Durante has an amazing Vintage Clothing store in the Antique Street in Berlin. He had a dress that was made from gorgeous fabric, but the style was VERY outdated. I upcycled it for him.
This is the dress before...
You would have to have a TINY waist to fit into this dress & the collar & puff sleeves are horrid!
This is what it became...
Now your turn... get into your cupboard, pull out all those items that sit there never being worn & see what you can convert them into!
