DIY “The Bride” Dress

June 20th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Here’s an easy weekend project: Turn a mundane outfit into something The Bride of Frankenstein might wear to go dancing. (It’d work with a man’s shirt or trousers too.)

This was inspired by an upcycled slip made by SmarmyClothes (I disagree with the “zombie” label; stitches are much more Frankensteinian). It appears that her garment was actually cut and stitched back together; my method uses a faux seam that’s a little more forgiving of mistakes: You can rip out stitches and re-do them until you get the look you’re after.

If you’d like to try your hand at something similar, I’ve posted a tutorial here.
