Sewing: Maxi Lady Skater Dress in Black and White

It's another Lady Skater Dress. This time in a colorblocked black and white. Always a good choice I think. And maxi length again.

I have made this dress twice before, one that is camouflage, elbow length sleeves and a modified maxi skirt and another with short sleeves and the same modified maxi skirt. This time I used the skirt pattern provided with the pattern but just lengthened it to the maxi. I can't decide which I love more, but the twirl factor with this skirt is really fun. 

These dresses are so wearable! I'm going to keep making them. I love being able to throw one on and add shoes. And maybe a necklace. I made this black tassel necklace in about five minute. But then after taking these photos I remade it and like it even more. I'll share a tutorial soon in case you're not already making these.

This dress should take me nicely through the end of summer and then I'm picking out some fabrics for Fall because the Lady Skater would be so comfortable with boots. Maybe I'll try one in the original skirt length too. Who knows.

I love the black facings with the white bodice, very crisp looking!
