Upcycled Romantic and Modern Bridesmaid Dresses

Every once in awhile, I get blown away by an upcycling designer. This morning, I came across Armour sans Anguish and I thought you might like what she does, too.

All I can say is, WOW!

Armour sans Anguish garments are constructed entirely from salvaged and recycled materials. Since 2004 designer and proprietress Tawny Holt has been committed to reclaiming what might otherwise be wasted to create clothing that is at once both shamelessly romantic and wearably modern.




If you or someone you know is getting married, and you love the idea of upcycling, Armour sans Anguish is just the place for you.

Again, I’m blown away by what Tawny can do with old clothes. She’s a superstar in my book!

    Re-imagining bridal party fashion. What a fantastic idea for women willing to embrace this whimsical take on the bridal party.

    I have one of the bridesmaid dresses from my wedding, It used a ton of fabric. I threw it into the kids’ dress up box, now my students use it for their Tall Tale retell! Ha, maybe I should put it in the garment bag. I do have an old Easter dress of mine that I was to refashion for a mother-of-the-bride dress. The colors are perfect for Kathryn’s future wedding. We’ll see!!!

    • That would be so pretty Barb! Mother of the Bride dresses are so hard to shop for. Hard to find things that don’t look too matronly or too young. You’d be right on trend with a refashioned dress. 🙂
