I love black and white stripes, prints, geometric shapes, etc! I always seem to be drawn to them when I visit the thrift shops. Check out these fun retro black and white numbers from the 60's. I love them!

Well, the other day at the thrift shop, I noticed a 2XL dress that was really speaking to me. It was saying, "Come on, for only $2.50 you can pick me up and make a retro-inspired mod dress!" I couldn't ignore the voice, so I purchased it!
I loved the black and white striped pattern. I didn't love, however, the fit, the bulky gathered skirt, and the uneven sewing on the waistband. I put my 60's playlist on and dedicated the evening to sewing. After a fair amount of tweaking, I was happy with the results.
