upcycle a dress with chains
I needed a dress for a party but I didn't have anything fancy and I didn't have time to make a whole new dress. So I decided to add chains to a dress so I would save time and have something new too.

    If you are sure, cut. If you are not sure, like me, cut it smaller so you can change it if you are not happy with it yet. After cutting, pin the seam and sew. I also made it a bit smaller under the arms because the dress was too big.

    Now, put the dress on a mannequin and look at the result. If you do not own a mannequin ask your friends/family for help. Decide where you want your first chain to be.

    Sew the chains on the dress, sew one chain on one side and attach a clasp. This string should be short so it can keep the sides of the dress together.

    I also sew some chains around the neck so the front of the dress would look cute too.
