Description

I found this stretch velvet dress at the thrift store ages ago, but couldn’t quite figure out what to do with it. I finally ended up just chopping off most of the skirt, sewing a ribbon to the front to make an empire waist/tieback, and taking some of the fullness out of the seams.

Material Notes

thrifted velvet dress, black satin ribbon, thread

Difficulty

Novice
