Black and white floral print summer top and more

I sewed a sleeveless summer top, a pair of white trousers and a black flared skirt in the past few days.

All the patterns are self drafted according to my body measurements. I bought all these three fabric from a local fabric store at my hometown.

The fabric used for the top is black and white floral print cotton. The top is simple pull over style accented with ruffled lace collar. The light weight cotton fabric used is comfy and perfect for the hot weather in my country.

The fabric used for the trousers is linen and cotton blend. Elastic waist band with side zipper closure.

The black flared skirt is of eight gores with back zipper closure. Elastic bands are attached to both sides of the waist band .The fabric used is georgette. I am delighted to see this skirt drapes well .
I think both the skirt and the trousers match perfectly well with this summer top . Don’t you think so ?

Black and white are timeless classic , basically these two colours can be coordinated with every other colours. Right ? Other than this summer top, I think I can always mix and match other tops , tunics and blouses with both the black skirt and the white trousers . :)

Hope you have a happy Thursday ! Enjoy sewing !
