5 Sewing Projects To Do With Old Bridesmaid Dresses

Looking for new ways to use the countless collection of bridesmaid dresses that you have in your closet? Luckily, we have a few DIY sewing ideas.  Yes, most of these will require some skills in sewing, but if you're not interested in donating the dress or turning the dress into another couture creation.

1.  Turn bridesmaid dresses into chair covers and tableclothes.  What a great DIY idea if you're crafty!

2.  With Christmas around the corner, make a tree skirt. Especially nice if your bridesmaid dress colors were red or green. 

3.  Make new pillow covers. Use the fabric from an old bridesmaid dress and turn it into an accent pillow cover. Just buy the pillow inserts at a crafts store and you'll soon have some new pillows.

4.  Make window valances, the things that go above windows.

5.  Make a Barbie bridesmaid or princess dress.  Thanks to the patterns at Miss B Couture, you can sew a whole new wardrobe for Barbie and friends.
