You Will Need
- A used bridesmaid dress
Take apart your dress and use the fabric by sewing the material into throw pillows, chair covers, or a runner.
Sell the dress at a consignment shop, online, or at a garage sale.
Donate your dress to a high school’s prom dress charity. Other charities and local thrift shops also accept special occasion dresses.
Shorten it to a cocktail dress or alter it into a blouse or simple skirt. If these projects are beyond your skill, hire a seamstress to do the alterations.
Lend the dress to a younger sibling or relative for a school dance.
Wear an old bridesmaid dress as part of a Halloween costume. Be a proper Southern belle or rip the dress and go as a prom queen zombie.
