I can’t explain my sudden attraction to red, but in a just a few weeks I’ve gone from a person who rarely wore red to someone who can’t get enough of it.
If I could select any outfit I wanted for Valentine’s Day, I would choose a red Valentino dress with ruffles. Believe me, I know this is no Valentino, but the spirit of Valentino’s feminine designs motivated this latest sewing project!
This Very Easy Vogue pattern was in my stash which I dressed up by adding a neckline ruffle.
The fabric is the same wool jersey from Mood Fabrics I used for the red cardigan wrap, and I added a new technique to my sewing skills after finally investing in a new invisible zipper foot. What a difference!
I’m retiring the remaining red fabric until the next winter holidays draw near, but I am thrilled that sewing has led me to this warm and perky color!
Best wishes for a special Valentine’s day.
