You have a 1970s-1980s dress at hand, and you do not know what to do with it? Let us see! We can use an old dress to create a new one and while doing this, we could easily turn this dress into various era fashion dresses. Surely, the material at hand must have the potential for what we have in mind.

How to see that potential in a dress mainly depends on your experience and creativity. But surely you could get some external help to turn your potential into action. How? Well, by simply checking my blog :) Yea, sure, that is one of the ways. But pay attention, I tell you what I had at hand before I start my projects, like “it was a 90s gown and I did so and so, such and such to turn it into a high fashion dress” etc. And I always post one or two photos of the result of my project. They should help inspire you, as well.
