New Black and White dress creation...
If you are a longtime reader of this blog you will know that I love me some bold prints! I also love Marimekko fabric and its cheaper cousin Ikea fabrics. I needed a 'statement' dress for a function at the MCC so I whipped up this baby. Well actually some parts were already made, such as the pin tucked front panel that had been sitting there for a little while but I got inspired and made some alterations.
I added a bell/wide type sleeve which is quite dramatic. Also I think the best accessories for this are black patent leather, so I added a black patent leather cinch belt, wedge shoes and patent leather clutch! I love the graphic nature of the pattern and really, you can't go wrong with black and white!
You can check out the dress on Burdastyle if you're on there too!
