What can I do with a dree that will never fit again but the colour & material is quite nice?

That should say dress

Is there a way to edit posts once posted?

do you sew? could you turn it into something else? are there pleats you could let out?

It is too fitted to let out.

Was hoping someone might buy it but no takers when posted a while ago.

Thought I could make it into something but not sure what. Can do basic sewing as haven't decided about a sewing machine yet.

what kind of fabric? cotton? stretch?

It is like a velvet material and quite a fitted dress.

cushions? if isn't stretch could sew it together w/another fabric patchwork stylee. if is stretchy could turn it into stuffed animals or summat. hand sewing is v therapeutic. honest

It would be easier if someone just bought it but I will try sewing! Thanks.
