Redesigning is styling and altering an old garment. A dress can be made modern, classic or anything desired. Redesigning can be made completely from the old garment or using just parts of it.
Suits, evening dresses, gowns, wedding gowns and christening dresses can be modernized this way.
There is often a special feeling with these garments; an old garment can be an important memory of a beloved mother or grandmother.
This is an ecological method of making new clothes, and often it is also less expensive than making a completely new garment.
