The {Red} V-day Skirt

I hope your Valentine's day was filled with love! Mine sure was and I got the chance to debut my red skirt. I made it especially for the special date with my husband.  So here it is...



 It's a Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity pattern 2512. A few weeks back they were having another 99 cent pattern sale (I can't resist those sales) so of course I went crazy (again) and stocked up. Among the patterns I got was this one. I love how different this dazzling skirt it is.


 I used a "Tango Red" satin with black satin binding. I just love the name of that red...perfect for a Valentine's skirt!




So there you have it my Valentine's day outfit (complete with red painted nails)!

Thanks for the compliments I'm glad you all like it!

Megan, as for the fabric it's not too hard to work with you just have to be sure to use a sharp and smaller sized needle than usual, because it can snag easy.

And Jessica I would love to teach you even though I too am still learning :)

Fantastic skirt! Love the pattern and color, but the added extras you make it unique and original.
