All black and white.

We know I have an obsession with black and white. I love stripes, high waists, pointed toe shoes, and put them all together and its like the best day ever. I go a little nuts matching everything for birthday parties, so when I was putting together everyone’s outfit for Beni’s birthday I realized I only had white pants/skirts. I knew that was not a great idea for a birthday party. So, I decided to get creative. I always think of things that I want to make, and when I saw a DIY high waist maxi skirt on pinterest I knew I had to jump on it. I can make a lot, but my sewing skills are pretty limited to children’s clothing so this was a first for me.


It was a pretty basic pattern. Honestly, I probably could have done it without seeing someone else’s project. In total it cost me less than $15. I purchased a basic black, flat bed sheet and I knew I wanted a contrasting zipper and stitching. It is far from perfect, but I am so in love with it. I am already looking for new fabrics to make more. The original pattern was not a big as mine. It used about half of the fabric I used, but you might as well go big or go home I always say lol.
