This year, Hubs has already planned a nice dinner out for all of us to enjoy the weekend BEFORE Valentine's Day (because, let's be honest- how is it even possible to celebrate Valentine's day ON Valentine's day when it falls in the middle of the week- like it does this year- and there is school and work and homework to contend with??).
1) It has to either have no sleeves or sleeves that are not loose and flow-y. Flow-y sleeves + open flame + melted chocolate = disaster! (not to mention fire hazard!;)
2) It has to be easy to wear.... I.E. Elastic waistband... because of COURSE I'm going to indulge in that extra chocolate dipped brownie bite! ;)
Of course, I want to look cute, too..... After all, it is Valentine's Day, am I right...?!
Since red is the color of the season, I chose to use a super-soft, red double brushed poly fabric that I've been
-I took the dress length skirt pattern piece and measured from the bottom of the pattern piece to the floor. Then, I added 1/2" for a seam allowance.
-Next, I added 1 1/2" to each side of the new bottom hem (to allow for walking and movement) and graded accordingly from the waist down.
