Pink and red

It was only when I finished sewing today that I realised I had a colour theme going. Pink and red together used to be a no-no when I was at primary school in the 80s. But I do love how they look together...

Edited to add: for those of you that are interested, yes I did make the skirt. The pattern was drafted by me at a pattern-making course I went to. Fabric is "nouveau bouquet gold" from Anna Maria Horner's wonderful Drawing Room collection. I bought it at Juniper Gallery in Newtown a couple of months ago.

Your new skirt looks gorgeous! I remember having a thing about red and pink clashing when I was younger, and i've been too scared to try the combination again since!

I love the skirt fabric, red and pink are so pretty together.

I love your pink and red skirt - I think that the colour rules have changed over the years, I remember when my dd was little and Pumpkin patch had a purple and green theme in their clothing one year - I thought it was hideous, but everyone brought it and I ended up quite liking the combination by the end of the season!
