Jessica Alba's Prom Dress 2014

Added Jul 21, 2014

Savannah, Georgi...






If anybody caught Jessica Alba on the Red Carpet in 2013, you would have seen the gorgeous coral gown by Oscar de la Renta she was fashioning. The moment I saw this dress I knew I had to make one just like it for my Junior Prom! Aside from a little pattern help from Ralph Pink patterns, this gown was all hand drafted (and pretty much improvised) the week of prom. The fabric I picked up on sale at Joann’s and is a two-way stretch taffeta by David Tutera in the color “Papaya”. The bodice is self-lined and bustier/sweetheart neckline type of style with some tough interfacing to hold up a long night of dancing! The bottom is just a good ole circle skirt, back closure with a sleek invisible zipper.

    Fitted dresses like this and/with strapless bodices are rather difficult to get right. You did an amazing job and you looked good on your prom day!

    Good job, you did a very nice time drafting it. A suggestion, take some length from the bodice so you don’t have that drag line/collapsing. Don’t get me wrong, you did a fantastic job, but if it is for your prom, you are likely new to sewing. I wish I had some more help when I started sewing in Jr High and later. Really beautiful. You are going to be an incredible seamstress.
