No, I am not feeling depressed. Yes, I like to wear black. I try not to wear all black, since that might beg the question of “whose funeral”. To which, the obvious reply would be, “I haven’t decided yet.” 😉
This top is my Sneha tunic hack. I described how I drafted and changed the pattern here.
I made it long enough to cover my bum. The fabric is a drapey black mystery knit. It feels like it has a lot of poly in this one, and I think it is likely a ponte. The patterned black is definitely a ponte. Love how these two looked together. The arms are a little tighter than I like, especially since ponte doesn’t have as much give as a regular knit. That will be something to tweak for next time.
If I were a bit more risque, I could wear this tunic as a dress, too. I think I am a bit long in the tooth to be wearing such a short dress, though!
I have colored my hair a bit darker here, too. I am totally a box dye kit girl. This is Natural Insticts Egyptian Plum. I do the wash out color, so we will see how long this lasts. I need 3 boxes of color, and could probably use one more for better coverage. It would cost me a small fortune to dye my hair at a salon, and I have never had a bad experience in doing it myself. My natural color is close to my son’s hair. I started out life as a blond, which was helped by being outside a lot in my youth. Once I got older and wasn’t outdoors as much, my hair turned more of a light brown. Blah! I, of course, didn’t start out subtle the first time I dyed my hair. I chose red, and have kept it pretty consistently some version of red for awhile. This is the darkest I have gone, though.
