Wedding Dress Tree Skirt

I've had this wedding dress laying in my attic for about a year. My cousin gave it to me to use as a Holloween costume last year but I didn't wear it. I've been seeing all these cute ruffled tree skirts all over the web so I thought why not use the wedding dress to make my own. So I got a piece of fabric for the circle backing and started taking the dress apart. This took the longest. I used the satin and the tulle to make the different layers. I added some strips to tie it together. It's so pretty and fluffy. I love it.

    1. Thanks, Yes there is plenty left to do more projects. That thing had so many ruffles on it I didn't know where to start at first.

    1. At least two of my cousins wore this dress so I'm glad I got to use it for something special.
