DIY Skirt & Bowtie makes a very Merry Christmas

Red velvet – an essential item to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Velvet – a very annoying, easily frayed fabric, providing much fun for the family and visiting relatives as you stress about hand sewing the hem all “shrumpy” and lament that you don’t have a sewing machine.
A sewing machine – a lovely surprise present which is given to you by your parents a day before christmas because they can’t let you suffer with hand sewing any longer.
Annika – a very happy girl.
A finished DIY velvet skirt – a half hand-sewn, half machine-sewn little velvety bundle of happy and christmas spirit!

Also, the story with the balloon - my uncle is a professional magician (seriously, probably one of the coolest jobs you could have + make money from) and whenever we have a family gathering, he is forced into doing a magic show for us all. Hence making balloon animals, and balloons that look like love hearts. So I thought it would be nice to incorporate it into my Christmassy outfit.

I even went so far as to paint my nails in Christmas colours! Haha. Vote for me on lookbook :)

I really hope that everyone has a lovely Christmas time!

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments as always!
