A Black-and-White Garden


A black-and-white floral print made up in the indispensible McCalls 5431. Just in time for Spring!



Will I ever get tired of a skirt that can be started and finished in about two hours (or maybe less) and is this much fun to wear? I don't think so.

  8. Hi Shannon,
    You're skirt is pretty, comfy and feminine. Just the style and lenght I like.
    Question for you, do you find Mccalls run small? Iam a size 10
    and think I should use size 12
    pattern size.
    What do you think?
    Thanks for you input

  11. Shannon that is so beautiful! I have heard you mention this pattern before but I have a question for you...do you lengthen the skirt at all and do you put the pockets on or not? I was wondering because although I like the style of this skirt, I tend to like my skirts a little longer than in the pattern picture and I also wondered if you used the pockets or not. Thanks!

    Blessings!
