I have upcycled a dress from a pair of trousers, the zip broke but I wanted to salvage it. I remembered I seen a fashion designer do this in a book so I thought I’d give it a go from looking at the photos.
Here’s what they looked like before.
I cut out a seam and with a bit of reconstruction I came up with this.
Where the safety pin is, you could use ribbon or slip a bow on said safety pin.
It was easy and very quick to do as the material is already there. I want to make another out of mens trousers or some jeans.
I got a few party dresses and patterns to buy… they’ll be posted at some point, unless I find something new to make!
