Ready for Valentine's Day? Let us help you...DIY Simplicity Skirt

Not sure what to wear for your Valentine? Think came across this beautiful floral print which was perfect for our DIY Valentine's Day project.
This beautiful fabric features a floral print with rainbow yarn sewn throughout is available online. Although it is in our outwear section, it is perfect for skirts and jackets as well. We decided to make a midi using Simplicity pattern 4236


While the pattern did not call for a lining we felt this skirt needed one. We used a cream colored ambiance and cut it the same as the skirt pattern. This worked perfectly.  

We attached the lining at the waist, hemmed the lining and...

 here is the finished skirt!

Of course I had to try it on before it went up for display in the store. This is one project I may have to steal back & wear it out.  I paired it with a hot pink tank, a navy cardigan and some gold wedges. Love it!

Just a reminder if you're looking for other Valentine fabrics or ribbons, check out our seasonal section. We just added new products for Valentine's Day.
