Red velvet matryoshka skirt with pom poms
I have seen this spring a nice red velvet skirt with pom poms and embroidered ribbons and I had to have one too... I knew I had a rest of red velvet from another project and a russian doll cotton fabric I just loved and hopping I will find a project for it soon. I wanted to use more ribbons initially but but after laying all on the table and doing some mixing it seems that less is better... For the waist band I used the same pattern and decoration as for the yellow polka dots skirt from the contest. For the lower hem I used lace and pom poms tape. Is a bit short I think but that's all the fabric I had left. Anyway I just love it. Is full of color and joy.
And now the skirt taken outside to play this weekend. And I must say it feels really good to be in the clothes I make even with all their flows.
I also made a small clutch to match the skirt here.
