Black and White. Part II

When I don’t feel like brooding over the combinability of my tops and bottom I usually reach for a dress. Or something black-and-white. Whatever the pattern, as long as it’s black-and-white, it’s always a go. I’d put on coloful shoes and scarves and I am good to go.

This spring I extended my black-and-white wardrobe, having sewn several skirts and tops. Today’s post features two patterned skirts and a long-sleeve T-shirt.


This skirt is very simple. I didn’t even line it as I meant to wear it in summer on an everyday basis. Taking into account the composition of the fabric (cotton-elastane blend) and the cut, it’s also not very likely to ride up. Moreover, I’ve already got several slips, so I decided to go for a linen-free skirt.

This one has side pockets. It’s very comfortable, especially if you are a “put-your-hands-in-your-pockets” kind of person (just like me). Due to the geometric pattern, this skirt is a bit tricky to combine with other patterns, though it’s a great partner for simple black or white pieces. Here, I paired it up with a white tee, that I sewed and painted:


… and with a black pully:
