As a mother of two, work is pretty much the fanciest place I ever go…but I just had to buy this Simplicity pattern anyway.
Well, at least I would be prepared if I ever got invited to a fancy-pansy party….
I decided to make it in a dark purple sateen, and here’s how it all turned out.

I love how it turned out! My husband, on the other hand, was a tad concerned about the length and then asked me where the prom was. I’ve never been to a prom, but I did go to winter formal once:
Yes, my date is wearing jeans with his tailed-tuxedo jacket. I thought about blurring out his face, but, for those who know me well, you will know that I have a hard time getting over certain things…I must say that it was a fabulous night that culminated in a near fist fight with another group of teenagers in the parking lot of our local Dennys. Oh, to be a teenager again….
and a side by side comparison…haven’t aged one bit…if you cut off the part of the picture where my face is…
I think I’ll wear this dress to an upcoming retirement party we’re going to since I’d look pretty stupid wearing it to the grocery store. Hopefully I can manage to have myself a brawl-free evening this time around…
