“How to reuse old clothes to make new clothes” is our main focus in this blog. I keep making more projects, taking pictures of them, and adding them here with extra descriptions of how to do it. You do not have to try to do exactly the same project, of course, to make a use of these posts. You might find the photos inspiring or the way I use old fabric and / or clothing could be helpful for you. I post these items in my etsy shop and try to sell them of course, but here on my blog, I could also help those who are interested in crafty stuff like this. Hence, I give more description and tips of how to make it on my blog and as I say often, you could simply go ahead and leave a comment here asking if you have any unanswered questions within my descriptions. I will reply to them leaving a respond comment right under your comment.

1920s The Great Gatsby pink combo dress, make a use of old clothing

Look at my new Gatsby design plus size combo dress (it’s a top and a skirt), I got rid of the crazy sleeves, finished edges with pink cotton ribbon, I then hand dyed this collar in a brown – mauve color to make a focal point. I changed the stretchy ribbon in a skirt, please make sure it fits you. I added a pretty vintage hand dyed in brown mauve color lace on the bottom of the blouse to pull it together with the lacy collar. I made a pretty flower pin as well for more fabulous and complete look. I loved the color of this Gatsby inspired dress, peach with little pink tone to it, very feminine. The top is fully lined, the skirt, however, doesn’t have a liner. Convo me in case of any questions please. And do not forget to check exact measurements below, please:

Measurements for top:
Bust (armpit to armpit): 24 inches
Waist (laying flat): 23 inches
