Love it. I turned old dresses into a chupa for a friend's wedding. Way to recycle!

I kept checking your blog. I couldn't see how you were going to do this, and you did it, and did a beautiful job. It looks RTW, and just like it was supposed to be that way always. I am in awe, and really impressed.

That is awesome Stacy!!! Taylor looks so pretty and what a great way to recycle a dress you'll probably never wear again - have fun at the wedding! :-)

Wow! You are one awesome seamstress! Your daughter looks beautiful in that dress. Way to make that casual looking pattern into a gorgeous dress for a wedding!

What a GREAT job you did reusing the traditionally 'unusable' bridesmaid dress! Your daughter looks lovely in it and it fits her perfectly too! How proud she must be that her Mom made it for her!

You did an incredible job on this dress! The before & after photo is perfect to show how an (essentially useless) dress can be recycled... hey, that would make a great PR contest!
