I really like the black and white contrast look combined with a cute peter pan collar. I added banding of black around the sleeves and hem to give the edges a finish. The skirt section is in a slight tulip shape with pleats at the waistline. I used princess seams in the bodice so I could get a tight fit without using darts. The material is a double knit jersey.
What do you think of these summery styles?
