DIY Spring Leather Black & White

Feeling so inspired in my new work space, I wanted to squeeze in a spring leather look before the true heat rolls in.  Using Vogue pattern 8815 A and Butterick pattern B5566 E as a base and this fabric from Mood which is way more amazing in person.

Pattern Alterations:

Vogue 8815
Used the front and back piece and added about 4 inches to the length
Cut the fabric 4 inches too big on each side
Added elastic
Altered the zipper
Added a mini mock neck

Butterick B5566
Added a pleated tulip to the bottom of the skirt
Created a high waist
