Got a vintage dress that’s — a little too vintage? Turn it into a cute party dress with a single long snip and a quick run on the sewing machine. Designer and boutique owner Kyung Lee shows how to turn a frumpy dress into sophisticated partywear in the latest issue of Readymade !
ReadyMade’s always features great upcycling tips in its pages, but the newly redesigned February-March issue boasts some new green-tinted sections, like “Reply All,” which lets readers share their best tips — most of them having to do with creative reuse. For example, one guy called Tim Park in Toronto shares how to turn incandescent bulbs into miniature flower vases — an excellent upcycling idea for all those oldies that have been replaced by CFL bulbs. Get the step by step instructions by picking up the latest issue of ReadyMade.
