Can you tell it was a very windy day?
I love color as much as the next guy but I keep a fair amount of black and white in my wardrobe. Black and white are so easy to accessorize and the classic color combo helps me to be ready for sudden schedule changes. The sleeveless blouse is great to wear underneath a jacket in the summer and the skirt can be worn to a dressier occasion with a silk blouse, strappy heals and rhinestone accessories. You’ll see these pieces mixed with other items in the future.
This outfit was inspired from Fashion Week Spring 2014 and I pinned it onto my Pinterest board “Fashion Trend: Black and White”.

I made a few pattern changes to the blouse.
- The pockets were too small for me so I enlarged them to my taste.
- The armhole was too low so I raised it 1-1/4″.
- I didn’t like the facing that extends in the shoulder so I turned it into a front band by chopping off the extension.
Do remember when cutting out the front pieces (pieces #1 and #2 including the front facing #2) to lay the pattern right side up or you will reverse which side the godet will hang.
