Valentine outfits

I made this tunic & bag (from 2 Ottobre patterns) for my oldest, for her school Valentine's party. It turned out really well and was a great fit (as I always find that with Ottobre patterns). I was really pleased with the ties at the back and my decision to use the stretch check fabric as a coordinate. It matched some leggings that I made last year... complete luck, I'd forgotten that she even had the leggings! The "Valentine Angels" turned out really well... my daughter made these for the girls in her class (I had mastered cutting out hearts by the 5th one).

This was a last minute valentine skirt that I made for my middle daughter... finished after she went to bed on Feb 13th! It's a slightly customized Ottobre pattern.
