Hello all! Last year, I was asked to design promotional dance costumes for an event. This was a small budget project so I had to be resourceful, which meant upcycling! Creating these outfits can be a snap. Grab a vintage pencil skirt, shorten it if needed and add some tulle from another vintage dress. The volume that the tulle creates will be super cute! For the tops, I altered some thrift store men's dress shirts and added tulle bows on the back to make a feminine upcycled play on a tuxedo top. Last, create a lace wrist cuff by securing a 4-5 inch piece of lace around the wrist with some snaps, ribbon or velcro. This would be a unique idea for an upcycled halloween costume too!
