Handmade Black Party Dress
This dress has a full skirt with pleats on the front and back and has 3/4 sleeves. It’s a simple dress, and unlined, but looks absolutely adorable on! It’s about 1″ too small for me in the waist, but I can squeeze into it if I suck in and hold my breath. The dress is made of a black poly-something blend with pretty embroider allover. Very nicely finished and seems to be in great shape!
I’m thinking about taking out the waist a little so I can keep it. If I do, I’ll take a picture of it actually on so you can appreciate it better than just on the hanger.
I hate that I couldn’t model this for you, but the sleeve lining has come unstitched so I need to repair that before I can wear it. This is a bombshell dress! The first time I tried it on, I positively felt like Marilyn Monroe. Another simple dress, but this one is very much a designer dress with lots of lovely details. It is by Mitsukoshi, a Japanese designer. I love the elbow darts and snaps at the forearm. It is fully lined and made of a pretty black crepe.
Both of these dresses were also on the 5,000 won rack. Yep, I paid less than $10 for these two lovely specimens! I guess Koreans are more into 1980’s than 1960’s…
which is fine with me.
