The money has been spent, the hems secured, the photos taken and the happy couple hitched. But what can you do once your bridesmaid dress has had its fun?
Sometimes the bridesmaid dress is a first draft.
“If they really like the color, if they really like the fit on them, [women] will come back and say, “˜Well, what can I do to make it better so I can wear it again?'”Š” says Diana My Tran, owner of Diana’s Couture & Bridal on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Dresses can be hemmed, tapered, dyed and re-fit, Tran says, but even the best tailor can’t salvage chintzy fabric. Brides “should pick the right fabric, the good fabric, and a decent design that people can wear again,” she says.
How to make a bridesmaid dress to a prom dress? Generally speaking, the bridesmaid dresses are designed in a simple style, so there is much room for showing your talent in design.
1 Put the dress on to determine if the dress fits or if you need to alter it by taking in the bust, waist or other areas of the dress.
2 Adjust the length of the dress to reach just above the knee. Use straight pins to fold the length of the dress up to indicate where the new hem needs to be made. Leave a couple of inches left on the bottom of the dress to accommodate for the hem you have to sew in the dress.
3 Cut off the excess length of the skirt of the dress to make it easier to pin up to its new length.
4 Indicate any other areas of the dress that you need to take in by folding the fabric of the dress over to the size it needs to be and using straight pins to hold the dress alterations in place.
5 Sew new seams in the dress using the straights pins as your guide.
