Seeing Red

Red is one of my very favorite colors and I couldn't resist snapping a picture of the cones of thread on my serger.  I just love the contrast of red against white. 

Pairing red with navy is also a favorite combination of mine.  This little girls jumper was rescued from the goodwill store.  I couldn't resist the appliqued paisley's.  I envisioned them on an AG skirt.

I was able to get 2 skirts out of the one jumper.  The one in the photo above turned out to more of a straight jean skirt that I paired with a simple red t-shirt.

This one though I have to say is my favorite.  The skirt after sewn up has an a-line shape which is much more flattering.  I made a simple ruffle around the neckline of the shirt and it's just the right touch don't you think?  Kind of like a cherry on top of a yummy brownie . . .

Oh yum!  I think I might just have to get me one of those!!

So cute! My daughter would have loved this when she was younger. I have always wanted a serger but have been a bit intimidated by it. I know I would use it alot though!
