A cute shrug I made from a simple knitwear dress
So, I had this dress in black. I knew I will not wear it anymore so it was perfect to have practice on making a shrug. I saw a couple tutorials and it seemed quite easy to make a shrug. So I decided to give a try. I needed a Gothic Lolita shrug desperately.And now I have one. I'm really proud of this one. What once was a plane dress now is a gorgeous shrug I don't want to take off. I love it !!!

I cut the dress bottom to get a desirable length top. I cut trough the front to make the opening. From the bottom piece I made little stripes and and trimmed the top and it sleeves with it by making ruffles. I sew a ribbon in front so I could lace the top, added lace and bows to make it more festive :)

This is beautiful, so perfectly in style Happy I love the creativity behind using the rest of the dress to decorate the shrug with ruffles and ribbons. Amazing job!

Thanks. Actually no fabric was left after I was done. It all went into ribbons and ruffles. And I wear it so often I'm afraid I'll have to by a dress and make another one Happy
