About two week ago I bought this dress; I really loved it and it looked great on me even though it had a makeup stain on the shoulder. The store gave me an additional 10% off and a little Shout took care of the makeup stain. One thing I noticed after I wore it to work is that I put a fresh makeup stain on it, and I think it’s because this dress has a side zipper. Then I remembered that dress shops used to have on hand dress hoods, which allow you to put a dress over your head and keep makeup off the fabric. My dress form doesn’t have a head so you see my daughter Emma being a good sport and modeling it for us. This is just a bag with a drawstring, I used some scraps of china silk and silk organza but really you make these out of all kinds of remnants – I think lace or tulle would be pretty too.
