Basic Black

Quick! What's the first thing you think of when you see this dress?

Black Pencil Skirt - Before

I'm guessing it was not "black pencil skirt," was it? Well, it wasn't my first thought either, but I got there eventually.

I removed the outer print fabric and flipped the zipper to the inside of the skirt since it had been sandwiched between the two fabrics. Then I took in the darts and gave it a new waistband.

And now I've got a wardrobe basic I was so sorely lacking before.

No, you're not going insane. Yes, you already saw these pics when I posted about the blouse a few days ago.

Any plans for the funky fabric from the top?

I don't have a solid plan yet, Bailey, but I'm thinking on it. I'm sure you'll see that 'before' pic again.

Loving the blouse still...;) And the skirt is such a great piece to have...but I, as well, am wondering what will become of the top half!
