BWOF 1/2008 pattern. The major thing that withdrawn me to the pattern were skirt pleats transformed to the belt loops. I already had two plain white skirts in my wardrobe, but this cotton was so right for the pattern, so I was thinking to myself – three white skirts aren’t too much :). One could say I’m obsessed with white and purple colors combination. Well that’s partially true. I had that purple satin band in my stash and it had the right width and length for the skirt, so it was quite normal to use it. However, I plan to buy bands in various colors to match them with blouses I would wear. In the meanwhile, I tried different belts with the skirt, and liked them all (even though I think that chain belt and the silver one would match better with some darker fabric).
