How to Sew a Prom Dress - Simplicity 8289

Hello sewing friends!  Prom season is upon us again and it's time to start thinking about what pattern to choose if you are making a dress. I thought it would be fun to share the prom dress I made for my daughter a few of years ago. I've been sitting on this post for a while but I'll just post the following as it was written when it was fresh...

My Schoolhouse Tunic!

Over spring break I decided sew up a new top for myself, and then I got sick and it sat unfinished.  This morning I hemmed it...yipee!

 I used the Schoolhouse Tunic Pattern from Sew Liberated. I made the shirt length version.   I have the hardest time making decisions when it comes to fabric choices for clothing.  I figured I'll never get good at it unless I just start making some choices, wrong or right.

For this shirt I used Project Runway fabric I found on sale at Joann. It is kind of a crosshatched pattern with a little shimmer to it though you can't tell from the photos. I think it works. 

A big thank you to my 5 year old for these pictures taken on a drizzly morning.  

Oh, and I'm linking this up to  Make it and Wear it and Rae's Spring Top Sewalong
