Can those 1980’s wedding dresses designed with big, puffy sleeves and a huge butt bow really ever be useful again? We say they can!

After discovering a $25 thrift store dress and examining the many yards of still lovely fabric with attached beads, our task was set to recycle this outdated dress into a modern and elegant gown that any bride would desire! The final product: A stunning wedding dress created entirely from recycled and eco friendly materials.
