So I took an old sweater dress, decided it needed to be more fun & it became an awesome Penguin Dress.



I got a 5X tank top (just to make sure I would have enough 'fabric') from Walmart (for $1), for the body. I cut and sewed both sides together, then added the other details.

Cut eyes from a black t-shirt's sleeve, I had left over from another project.

Then I crocheted the nose.

Most of the dress was hand sewed on, but I was able to use a sewing machine to attach the top & bottom of the body.

It was a big hit at my office Christmas party and is now my favorite dress  Grin

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
