I made this (from a pattern) for a homecomming dance. At first it was way too small so I had to add some strange pieces, but it turned out just fine. I love this fabric! Now everything else I sew seems so easy compared to a formal dress.

OMG! Simplicity 4943, right?  I have that pattern!  I am thinking about using it for prom.  Was it a hard pattern to use?  What about the boning?

That's the one! It wasn't too hard, but it's challenging if you haven't made a dress before. I just got freaked out sometimes when doing important seams, and sometimes I did have to rip stitches and redo seams, but that's just me. As for the boning, I didn't use it (rebel me) for two reasons: I forgot to buy it, and when I tried it on I didn't think it needed it. The bodice has a lot of pieces, but it wasn't that bad. The hardest part of that was sewing curvy pices to straight ones, but the skirt was a snap! If you're going to make this, pay super close attention to the finished garmet sizes so you don't make it too small (common sense, I know, but I messed up there) and take your time. It's sooooooo much fun to make (not to mention to wear!) Have fun with it!
