V8962 Valentines Skirt

f3

Just a quick little post today, prepping for Valentines Day. One of my favorite special days…

This skirt is done in a heavy weight Ponte from Stylish Fabrics, a perfect weight for a knit skirt. This was also my first purchase from this fabric vendor, and I’m very pleased with the fabric, shipping, and service.

What a great color, and the fabric is heavy enough that my tucked-in top doesn’t announce itself 🙂

This is my second version of the V8962 skirt, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite. It just suits me, and I love all the opportunities to highlight the seven panels with topstitching on the seam allowances.

Wow, that back vent is great. In a ponte knit, it finishes beautifully.

I made this version exactly as my first (here). So just a few more pics. I feel really pretty and trendy in this style! And it speaks to my new year’s resolution to add form-fitting designs to my closet.

  1. It is so refreshing to see you in a skirt Coco and you really suit this style. It’s a perfect length too.
    St Valentine’s Day – personally I can take it or leave it. I’m not much of a romantic. I’d rather have the gifts given spontaneously and that the consideration lasts for the other 364 days of the year. Still waiting for that, mind you………

    1. Now now…a little chocolate overload is good for the soul!! I’m not very romantic either, but February is my birthday month, which, for some reason, has always made Valentines Day part of my month-long celebration 🙂

  2. I am so glad to see this made up as the pattern drawing had me thinking it would be way too narrow. I will now get it out of the stash of patterns.

  3. Love your new skirt! It looks beautiful on you and it looks perfectly constructed (love the top stitching!). Can’t wait to see what you make next!

    1. Thanks so much, Adrianne. I just love this skirt, and plan some more (yes, more than one more!). Next up will be a ruched knit top or my first ‘real’ version of the M7726 high-waisted pants…
