Repurposing Bridesmaid/Formal Dresses

Most thrift stores and even some closets are bursting at the seams with flouncy (and yes sometimes tacky) formal dresses, while some are merely outdated and unwanted.

Recently I have been purchasing them for the layers of material that are used for the dresses to line the coffins with, but after the skirt was removed from the bodice my daughter realized that it actually resembled the cape she wanted to make – so needless to say she claimed the skirt for her.




The end result was gorgeous and, thus, started the capes for Lizzy in “The Nightmare Witch Saga”.
