Santa Skirt

I actually planned to make this skirt way back in August. Plenty of time to have it ready for our big Christmas Kick-Off open house! In reality I got it done at 11:25pm the night before the shindig…

But I got it done all by myself, thanks to some great FB chat instructions from my sister, and it looks great as long as you don’t look too closely! ;o)

Don’t look too close, remember? LOL

Luckily the print is just so darn cute that no one would notice all the flaws anyhow…

Aren’t those Santa’s adorable???

Although the skirt was done, there was still one hitch. Nothing to wear with it! I had searched all summer and fall for the perfect red sweater to no avail. I had become so desperate I had even decided I would settle on a red turtleneck if it was the right shade of red… Nothing! In a last ditch attempt, I made a stop at the Goodwill the day before the party. They there were, TWO sweaters in just the right shade of red and in my size! And all for under $10!!!

I already have my Santa skirt schedule all figured out: next appearance, Family Christmas on Saturday!

In the meantime, maybe I should just leave it hanging by the wet bar in the family room??? It matches the rest of the d├ęcor perfectly! ;o)
