LBD

I made two little black dresses last week for a wedding we attended this past weekend. I ended up not wearing the one I originally planned to wear to the rehearsal because I thought it was a little too dressy. I'll post it later.

Here's my inspiration for this dress.  Found on Modcloth.


My first attempt at the bodice turned out WAY too low. I tried to cut the sweetheart neckline without a pattern and it just didn't work. I would have danced my way out of it, if ya know what I mean. Dan suggested I work on my dance moves and keep my hands down. No fists pumps? Yeah right! So I remade the top frantically Thursday night because we had to leave Friday after work. Whew! 

Excuse my terrible camera I can't seem to get a clear picture. Also I took the second picture after it had been worn so its a little wrinkled.
