I feel like this is my 60's film noir spy dress. I should get a wicked trench coat to go over it & go hunt down thieves or murderers or kidnappers, don't you think?
It's hard to photograph a black dress, but this is simple, so there aren't really details you need to see. It's a lot like one of my blue dresses, but this time I added sleeves & a built-in belt, and took out the v-back. It's out of nice black cotton I got in a bin of fabric from a sweet friend, & it's so comfortable I want to wear it all the time. Sleeves on dresses are the best. I forgot to add pockets, though: an unfortunate oversight! Next time, eh?
I actually made this dress last week, but it's been such a whirlwind of a weekend that I never got a chance to post it until now. I wore it to a bridal brunch on Friday for my brother's (then) fiancee, & then later that evening to the wedding rehearsal & dinner. I have photos from these events (& of course the event that followed the next day) just waiting to be edited & posted.

So, I'm not used to wearing this much makeup. At all. My daily maximum is just concealer, powder, and mascara. Putting on eyeshadow and liner is so foreign to me! I tried to do a slight smokey eye, but I have no idea what I'm doing so I don't know if I succeeded, haha.
