The Skirty Dozen

Happy Spring, Northern Hemispherites!

In honour of the changing of the season (goodbye winter, hello spring) and the fact that it is a lovely warm day, I decided to don a cheerful outfit today. 

The skirt is another of my "Skirty Dozen," made from a rayon woven that many of you will recognize from Fabric Mart offerings a while back.  It is soft and flowy fabric - perfect for a skirt.  It is also quite pretty with the sweet little floral pattern.

Both the teal top and the watermelon coloured cardigan punch up colours found in the print of the skirt.

The teal sandals and amber pendant are the finishing touches.

Every year, I always find winter so dreary and thus I'm positively itching to put on some bright colours by this time of March.

And it goes without saying (even though I am saying it) that I am ecstatic when sandal season rolls around.  I love banishing the socks and letting my toes feel the breezes.  Ahh... delicious...

But, enough chatting.  It looks like a certain pup is telling me it's time for a walk.

Thanks for sharing another of these wonderful skirts with us! I'm seriously gonna copy one or two especially since I own quite a lot of the same fabric!

Great spring outfit.. We are turning the other corner down here in Aus. I am actually looking forward to sewing with some of the wools I have purchased. I will definately keep the skirts in mind when spring is sprung down here again. Love the colour combinations too (and the shoes).... and how can you resist that face - you dog is gorgeous

Love your skirts. I think I'll follow suit and sew up several. Enjoy this weather! I'm along Lake Michigan in Michigan and can't believe I'm wearing sandals in March.

Love your bright spring outfit as I prepare for our winter.

Hartley is gorgeous and so polite, had better show Roscoe how to ask for walks instead of jumping all over me :)

You're so right, the first sandal day of the year should be a celebration of its own :-).

Such a cheery, pretty outfit! And I have the same sandals, only in green!

I love the skirt and the bright color combo! And your dog asks so nicely to go for a walk ... mine just jumps up and bounces off the backs of my knees until I give in ...

You are so right, March needs more colour, it's wonderful to see sandals reappear (although my toes have been caught off guard).

I love that outfit, teal and watermelon top really play up the colours in the skirt.

Gorgeous Spring outfit. I am so inspired to sew a couple more skirts, and they will be in light colors! Your colors look great together.
