Ok, I went shopping today at Jo~Ann's since they had some good sales plus a lovely 15% off everything. I'm making my daughter her prom dress along her best friend friends, aka my "weekend daughter's". These besties seems to be the easy one IF I can find it, there are only two stores in this area that sell Simplicity and neither sell it so it must be BRAND new, http://www.simplicity.com/p-8767-misses-special-occasion-dress.aspx#t-0.

Anyhoo, my daughter choose this dress http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6466-products-15236.php?page_id=109 and I'm having a horrible time figuring out which pieces I need and cut out in which fabrics!! I have three fabrics, a solid blue which should be the basic body fabric, a sparkly blue that should be the over-lay fabric that would be done over the bodice and over the skirt and she wants that to also be the one shoulder. The last is a darker blue that would midriff/belt. This pictures doesn't list all of the pieces so I want to make sure I get all of them.

Help, Pretty please??????

Heidi, who hasn't sewn since daughter was more 2x4'ish, now is Junior in high school and um developed, Help when did that happen :-(

I went online to "sewingpatterns.com" and looked at this pattern. NO, it didn't list the pattern pieces! Could you list them for me and I'll be able to help you better? It looks easy.....

Hi Heidi,

The basic dress part will be Bodice 4 "strapless bodice" and Skirt 10 "short straight skirt". The sparkly part will be Bodice 1, "One Shoulder Drape" - you'll need a front and back (2 bodice pieces) which should be included in the yardage amount on the envelope. Lastly is Midriff 6, "plain midriff" for the belt.

Happy sewing and be sure to write a review with a picture when you finish!

What I'm confused about is the whole dress looks sparkly and that is what Kari likes. So I guess that is where I'm thinking that for the strapless bodice and the short straight skirt would be done with the sparkly fabric overlay. and just a sheer for the One shoulder drape. Am I crazy???

Getting the bodice to fit like it should with an overlay seems like it would be just asking for trouble. Maybe you could find a solid fabric (with substance, like a satin) with sparkles for the bodice/skirt part? I made my niece a prom dress once from some satin that had sparkles on it, kind of like glitter. (note: that was about 15 years go and I'm pretty sure whoever lives in that house now is still finding glitter in the cracks of the floorboards, LOL).

Jo-Ann Glitter Satin

p.s. the black dress picture looks more like it is supposed to represent a sequin fabric, not an overlay

Thank you for this fabric information! I ended up going back to Jo~Ann's and buying this fabric and two coordinating pieces that my daughter is thrilled with. You have just saved me a ton a work. I really do hate how they over embellish the drawings on the front of their patterns!
