From an old dress that I wore as a kid into a velvet shrug.
I just detached (sp?) the bodice from the skirt and cut the front of the bodice up the middle & hemmed. Handsewn  Lips sealed which made it more of a pain than it had to be but still very easy.
I've put up pics & this is my first time so I'm hoping it will work.  Undecided


On me.


On hanger.


& some leftover fabric from the skirt of the dress.
Any idea what to do with it?
I'm kinda stumped. Apart from the obvious option of making a skirt.
Thanks

It would be really easy to make a skirt but I don't wear skirts often, so it would probably just gather dust in my closet.

I think I like the bag ideas though.

cute idea! I like it =)

As to the extra fabric, maybe you could make a small matching purse/clutch from part of it, and a hair scarf/cloth belt from the remaining fabric.

OMG!! I'm almost certain that is the same dress my daughter wore at around 4yrs old, and was her favorite! She's now 19. Her dad and I were divorced and he gave her this beautiful blk velvet and taffeta dress, and the poor baby would sleep in it, or ask to wear it to kindergarten.  I'm going to copy your idea if she wants to still wear it (I saved it) maybe with evening dresses.  How clever of you!

 Shocked
That's so awesome.
I think we DO have the same dress.
Well as a kid I thought it looked pretty
but I thought the taffeta was itchy
& so I didn't like it for that reason.
Ha, I was a pretty picky kid.
