10 Doily Dresses – Charming and Simple-to-Follow Ideas

Doilies make for great upcycling material as they are often well-made, beautiful, and in abundance.

The history of the doily is really quite interesting, being created in 1844 and gaining in popularity for many years after. You can often find quality vintage doilies in thrift stores or vintage stores for mere pennies.

We’ve done a roundup of upcycled doily ideas while also featuring a stunning doily wedding dress in our crochet wedding dresses roundup.

In this collection, we’ve found lots of great recycled doily dresses that are cute and expressive to give you some ideas of what you can do with your recycled doilies.

Up-Cycled Doily Dresses

We are big fans of reusing and recycling in all areas of life, but especially in the crafting world. So many things can be reused or repurposed when you are an active fiber artist, like these incredible upcycled doily dresses.

  1. I would really like to get help learning how to join crochet dollies to repurpose them into shirts and dresses. Ideas on picking dollie patterns would also be a help.
