Day 17- An article of clothing that you made or altered.

Last year we were invited to our first Thanksmas party (aka Ugly Sweater party) that is held in-between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year by Mike & Celeste. I thought to myself ugly sweater!?!?! No way... How about an ugly dress! So I went to Goodwill and on my first try, found a perfect red dress! Whopping $7! So then off to Michael's I went!

The additions included:
  • Sparkly Green Pom Poms
  • Sparkly Red Christmas Bow (part of the belt)
  • Snowflakes
  • Christmas Ribbon (small bows)
  • Sparkly White Pom Poms (earrings, shoes, and dangled from the bottom of the dress)
  • White Glittery Tinsel (neckline and the bottom of the dress)
  • Red Ribbon (hair tie)
It was a lot of fun to put this together and Norman and Contessa also enjoyed (taunted me) helping me sew it all on.

Preparations & Assistance
Contessa loves glittery tinsel!
Contessa loved trying to grab the thread when I was sewing.

Final Product!
