I found this sweater at thrift and thought it had some potential. For a few weeks it sat in my crafting corner in the basement providing warmth for me and whoever else could fit inside. But since then I have located the thermostat and it was time to say goodbye. No before pictures but it was an XXXL sweater, imagine the hideousness.


Close up of fabric (ignore the weird drug riddled look on my face. I have no idea why my eye looks so wonky)


I'm wondering how long I can wear a Christmas dress for. I figure at least until all the decorations in my town are gone, so that'll carry me into April.

I can mentally see the how oogly that sweater was before you got a hold of it. Now it has morphed into a fabric that is so ugly that it's cute and perfect for what it became- a bad ass sweater dress that can be worn through April despite the disappearing x-mas decorations.

That is awesome. You know what would be just as awesome? Doing the same thing with those light up christmas sweaters. Those things are hilarious!
