A wow combination of fabric, texture and my inspiration, and this is a classic interpretation of my favorite designer. I used Burda 7556.
Velvet for the top, a very stretchy velvet.
Netting for the bottom. I chose one with a sturdy hemline and I did not need to hem this piece.
Long zipper, like 24 inches.
Practice the stretch stitches on the fabric and use a jersey knit needle for your sewing machine for the velvet.
Plan to clean your machine as the velvet will be invasive.
Design your own dresses with the latest special price technique kit.
