What do you do with that bridesmaid dress?

You support your sister or your best friend as being a witness to the wonderful event of their marriage into a life as a family unit and now you are stuck with a puffy lime green one shouldered dress that you will never wear again. Sound familiar? Instead of that dress sitting unworn in your closet for years, you now have a green option to get that dress reused. Donate your dress to any one of a variety of organizations and benefit.

Support Locally
You can donate your dress and even your time to help outfit young ladies in Chicago with prom dresses through the Glass Slipper Project. What a great way for someone else to benefit from the purchase of your formal gown. http://www.glassslipperproject.org

Support Globally
The Bridesmaid Party – Working women in Afghanistan or Kenya will use the material and turn that dress into a treasure for someone else. And you will get a credit of $25 toward a $40 purchase from its online store. Not a bad deal! http://thebridesmaidparty.com/donate/#

DIY
Or if you are good with the sewing machine, make another beautiful piece of clothing for yourself or a loved one. Check out this article from the ultimate crafter herself, Martha Stewart, for ideas: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/bridesmaid-revisited
