1  Simplicity 3885- Jessica McClintock dress in Sewing Pattern Reviews by peppermintsss on: June 30, 2007 09:25:17 PM
After taking my boyfriend to my two proms, I made him promise me that he would take me to his. When I made him promise me this though, I didn't think about how I would get money to buy a new dress (because of course I couldn't wear one of my old dresses!!).

One day though, I was working (at Jo-Anns) and found this amazing raspberry-purple silk that was clearance for $9/yard.. ON SALE 75% OFF!! This brought it down to like 2 dollars and something a yard.... and all I could think of was prom dress!! Oh yeah, did I mention that there was a coordinating silk that was something like $6/yard on sale for 75% off too? Shawl, anyone?

I wasn't completely thrilled with the outcome (I finished about a half hour before prom). The pattern was really easy.. but since I lost a bit of weight just after I made a muslin of the dress but just before the prom, I didn't have much time to alter the final dress. Thats all right, I got a lot of compliments and it did it's job.

I would definitely recommend this pattern. It worked up fairly fast. I didn't really have any complaints whatsoever about it!!
