Spring Uniform: New Look 6459 in Black

Not much to say about this item and not many photos. Black is just such a waste of time to photograph.
img_5884I made another pair of cropped trousers, or culottes with New Look 6459, but this time in black, because we all need healthy doses of black in our wardrobe. They are much the same as my last pair, but a little shorter. They were made with a piece of black cotton twill with no stretch from the collection. Possibly from Spotlight, circa 2009?? 🙂

I struggled to find a shorter top to wear with them, which was prior to my birdie peplum or Vicki top, so instead shortened a quite under-utilised top from my wardrobe, made from Nani Iro sateen (McCalls 7083).

img_5887I’m have really enjoyed building this mini spring, work wardrobe. It is quite a departure from my usual style, but I think it works for me. In saying that though, I think I’m done. There are only so many pairs of ‘clown pants’ that one person needs.

    They are not clown pants at all! I’ve made the top from this pattern, but not the pants (yet!) I’m loving your spring looks, and they would translate nicely to fall here in the NH. Enjoy your culottes!
