Black and white combinations...

These are too little projects I made before moving to Montral but didn’t had time to take pictures of it.

The top part was a tunic/dress. You know that kind of clothing that is too short for a dress and too long to be a flattering tunic + this one had really low armhole, you could see the side of your bra plus a bit of the skin bellow the bra, really low I’m telling you! So I cut it in two parts, I now have a racer back top and a small tube top.

The skirt was a big polyester kaftan I bought at H&M for 3euros. I just cut a rectangle in it and gathered it with an elastic at the waist.

I like the combination of the two black and white prints together + I can play with the racer back and the tube top, wear them together, wear the tube as a belt or a cowl,… Add a black racer back top and you get even more combinations.

    i LOVE the mix of prints—i’ve been really attracted to black and white fabric lately so maybe i’ll give that a try. and you were very creative with the outfit combinations!

    The two prints look amazing together! Love the idea of refashioning a kaftan into a skirt!
