Vintage Black 1960s Dress

Gratuitous outfit post, to distract you while I feverishly work on the red polonaise, to be worn this weekend (eeek! it has no sleeves!)

Also, this is one of my favorite dresses ever.  I did not make it, but was lucky enough to snag it from a friend, Lady Carolyn, who was liquidating some of her amazing vintage closet.  It’s a black silk sheath, nicely fitted through the waist, and with some pleaty detail on the bust.

I wore it with an ochre colored pillbox hat, to Debbie and Oscar’s wedding on Sunday.
