Amazing Prom Dress Upcycle

refashioned prom dress

This is one of my favorite refashions ever – not just because it’s cool, but because it was done by a teenager! It’s so fun that she bought her own dress from the vintage shop and then altered it to be the beautiful prom dress you see on the right. She makes it sounds easy – visit the blog to read about how it was done.
