This is meant to be more of an inspiration than a true tutorial.
One guy, one time, one dress.
This is the idea behind trash the dress. YES your wedding dress. I heard about brides trashing the dress is some fun fashion and taking pictures of it the day after the wedding. Well my wedding wasn't yesterday and there was no way I would fit into again. So I cut mine apart and am making multiple projects out the satin and beading.
You know it is a pain to store the dress and even though we all hope our daughters will want to wear ours, that is not the case very often. So let me gently nudge you to this idea. The projects are unlimited but here is a photo journey of my trashing.
I know this sounds off, but it was very therapeutic and I don't regret it a minute, cause I love the projects I have made even more (and they take up less room than storing the whole dress)
