07 Dec Tis the Season to Wear Red
Ah… D e c e m b e r ! If you’re a woman it’s stressful – period.
So busy was I making the evening gown last month, that I gave zero thought to holiday apparel. Hoping to find time to make something…. anything……. to add a little splash to my ho – hum holiday wardrobe, I stopped by Mary Jo’s last weekend while traveling. I bought the brightest red I could find in the store.
Then I bought this pattern.
Last month I became intrigued with the Badgley Mischka evening gowns and the designer name caught my eye. What I really like is the top included in the pattern, but all I had time to make was the skirt, so here it is….
Before I committed to making clothes for a year, I would have never bought a bright red skirt . I would have bought a black one to be practical and this is what I love about sewing! $18.00 for fabric, lining, zipper and thread spurred me on to choose the color I craved without the guilt.
Kate Spade here I come!
