Shiny in Black.

I have had about 5 metres of this black stretch poly in my stash for a few years and decided to make a pant suit.  We were going on a cruise and felt it may be fun to take along.  I like ‘one colour’  dressing and while black is not my favourite  I wanted to combine it with silver and accessorize with pearls and heels;   for a bit of contrast.  As well,  I am planning to make  a few ‘nice shirts/tops’  to  complete the looks.

The idea for the capsule  was slim pants,  jean style jacket and  little black dress  from the black (neutral).  Then add a relaxed   silver/grey jacket,  hail spot organza shirt,  silver/black knit tank and cardigan and maybe a pink silk shell.  Top it off with some pearls…maybe a choker of black or a strand of cream.

I started with the jacket in  Burda Mag  7/2008.  I had tried to make the jacket before,  my first attempt at SWAP but lost the sleeves;  and it ended up as a vest.  You can see here .  This jacket has a lot of nice detail.  Piping around the collar and pocket flaps,  concealed button, lots of top stitching and an  insert on the back of the collar which makes it stand up.
