When a staffer at our local newspaper, The State contacted me and asked if I’d like to do an Ugly Christmas Sweater refashion for them to feature in their Life & Style section, I of course said yes.
What followed was some 40 or so emails where they wanted me to either make a tacky sweater normal or make a normal sweater tacky (How uninspired!) and me refusing to do that and instead insisting on making a ballgown out of a BUNCH of Christmas sweaters.
I’m very stubborn. :)
I don’t have a full tutorial of this refashion, but here are some behind-the scenes pics:
And here’s a video from where I explain my process (and yes, I know my voice is weird, okay?). :)
Everything got all nice & stitched together, and now….
Of course, I don’t just make dresses to not be seen! My fahhhhhbulous new frock enjoyed an Ugly Christmas Sweater Bar Crawl with some of my favorite people!
And look what I saw first thing this morning! :)
Big Mondo Major thanks to for letting me play. :) This is my absolute favorite project to date. I’m really proud of it, and I hope you guys like it too. :)
