1960s skirt from vintage Simplicity pattern #7869 . This was going to be my Christmas skirt but part way through I had eaten too many holiday goodies and I could not zip it up! Ha! Luckily I managed to shed those extra couple of pounds so I could fit back into it. I ended up going mini-length for spring/summer (whereas I originally cut out the knee length for the holidays).

Please visit my blog, The Fabled Needle, for more info.

      Thank you! I don’t have a ton of red in my wardrobe and this skirt certainly has been a fun addition. :D
