As well all know Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you still looking for that perfect outfit to wear then check out these outfits that you can make for any kind of date you are going on…

Day Date

Have something planned during the day? Perhaps a lunch date or some day trippin’? Make something comfy-yet-stylish like our Peasant Blouse paired with these shiny Pleated Pants. Then depending on the weather try whipping up a simple coat like our Fitted Coat sewing pattern in a statement fabric. Then just wear with some trendy platform sneakers and sleek sunglasses!

Night Out

Maybe you are the party type and like to go out and let loose on Valentine’s Day with the girls! Wear something shimmering like our Sequin Tank and pair with a sleek pencil skirt sewn in leather. Don’t own one? Try making this skirt pattern! It will be a piece that you’ll wear again and again.

Out for Dinner

This is personally my favorite thing to do on a special occasion… but to avoid all the busy nice restaurants we always go out on Feb 15th! When dining out, I know I always like to be comfortable – and glamorous of course, so that’s why we suggest sewing up a dress in stretch fabric like our Fit and Flounce Jersey Dress. Since February can be quite cold (where I am especially) you’ll need a faux fur of course to walk from the taxi to the restaurant in like this one.

Staying In

This is my ideal situation on Valentine’s Day evening, just staying in with wine and chocolate. Doesn’t even matter if my date is there or not, or heck – even if it is Valentine’s Day haha! Flex your lingerie sewing skills and make our Satin Bustier and Hight Waisted Panties to wear under a beautiful silk robe like this one. Then of course you need to think about foot wear, and it seems as though you can’t go into any store without seeing fuzzy slippers.

Outdoor Fun

If you are an outdoorsy-type then a romantic skating date like in the movies might be more your scene. You’ll need a nice coat of course! This coat pattern is a quick sew and pairs over a cozy turtleneck sweater like our Cut Out Shirt pattern. Don’t forget your earmuffs! The bigger the better.

Beach Date

If you are lucky enough to be able to escape and get away to a resort for Valentine’s Day then you need to be beach date ready! Before you leave make our Bandeau and Sarong two-in-one sewing pattern. Then of course you need your cocktails to sip with your hunny all day into the night.

What’s your Valentine’s Day date style?

For me, I’m wearing this knotted black jersey dress that I recently sewed up!

Happy Sewing!
