A Cherrypix post

Anne loves all things black and white. Well, in "Fashion and styling", Bill Cunningham from NY Times did a review of the chicest fashionistas recently and while I was losing interest in a weekend project I made this b/w print for a pick me up.
This Tessutis remnant black and white ponte print ($11.60) bought at the November Sydney Sewer meet up and an old TNT t-shirt pattern gave me the "I really can sew" pick me up I needed.
Not too sure about this print or shoes - but I keep smiling.
I extended this pattern from waist to my knees with ample tush room for a dress version. With a bit of fold over elastic on the neckline, a centre back dart and coverpro hems this quick knit dress was finished.
Side shot - the shoes look better. Still thinking about this print.
By the time I finished the dress, I had thought of a resolution to my shirt lining issue. I cut out a neckline piece and added this to lining.
Ok - so the print is ok and the shoes are too.

The dress is very cute, and the shoes look good with it.

Hello Maria - I always wonder about prints as well, but the colours in this print suit you, it fits nicely, and I think with a certain toss of the head you could carry the dress off very well!

I do love black and white as well. I frequently feel sad when the colours end up running, but I am drawn like a moth to light. Navy and white come a close second.

Anyway, the dress looks fabulous on you :-)

I think the print looks great on you and so do your shoes. I think I need to find myself a quick and easy sewing project for in between the bigger ones as well :)

Oh I really like it and I think that neckline shape is so flattering. I love red shoes and these look great with the black and white.

Sophisticated print + red hot shoes = great combination. I like!

I think you look fabulous in both . Black and white dresses are so versatile you will find lots to go with this .

I like it. The simplicity of the pattern works well with the print and the red shoes look good with it.

Did the NY Times link to your new black and white dress? (:

I like freshness of black and white and, of course, the print goes well with the simplicity of the elongated t-shirt.

Great dress - I will have to google fold over elastic. Sounds interesting. Love the black and white too - very fresh looking.
