Putting Together an Emergency Prom Dress Kit

So you want to put together an emergency prom dresses kit. Let’s face it—at formal dances, all kinds of dresses are introduced to the elements. It doesn’t matter if they’re short dresses, prom dresses, formal dresses, cocktail dresses—they all have a chance of being ruined. The question is—how do you put together an emergency prom dress kit so that you don’t accidentally end up ruining your dress or end up having to leave due to an issue?

First of all, you want to have an idea of what could occur. Don’t think alien space invasion type of things that could occur, but rather “I could have juice spilled on me.” or “I might step on my hem and rip my dress.” These are both very valid accidents and are very likely to happen. In this case, you should carry something that will help to aid both with repairs or the removal of stains.

You also need to keep in mind the fabric of your dress, before you ever create your kit. The reason for this is that you may consider using a certain type of cleaner only to discover that it ruins that type of fabric. Good thing that you knew before, huh? The same goes for repair materials.
