I’m excited to share my favorite bright floral skirt today as a part of the Color Me Lucky Blog Tour hosted by Sewing By Ti. I also tested another wonderful top that pairs perfectly with the skirt!
This month, Ti’s theme was simply to take a look at the 2017 Pantone colors and interpret in our own way. My skirt showcases Lapis Blue, Pink Yarrow and a little bit of Primrose Yellow.
Confession: I actually made this skirt a while ago, but I never blogged about it. It pairs perfectly with the prompt, so I couldn’t resist sharing it as part of the tour.
I’ve mentioned in passing how much I really love the Sybil Illusions Skirt by Love Notions, but this version in a bright floral liverpool that I got in a Knitpop auction box is one of my faves. It definitely brightens up a chilly winter day! I didn’t add pockets to this pleated version, but I wish I had. Always add pockets…always.
The skirt pairs perfectly with the new ponte Bryant Dolman that I had the pleasure of testing for Kimberly of Straight Stitch Designs. It is such a quick sew with a well drafted boatneck that really showcases a good statement necklace. Get it for 10% off until this Sunday! Did I mention it has a long sleeve option, too?
I can’t wait to make another Bryant in a jersey knit. But, the stability of the ponte does work wonderfully tucked into a skirt like this one. Drapey knits just don’t sit on my body well when tucked into skirts.
Ready to follow along on another great blog tour? There are so many lovely ladies interpreting this color palette this month–be sure to check them out!
