A few months ago I found this gorgeous velvet from sale bin at my local fabric store and decided to followed a Simplicity pattern and make it into a top… Here it is! The only part that was difficult was making sure they were sewn properly, because I’m sort of a beginner, I still need to work around with stretchy materials.
I made the shorts with some left-over fabrics from my other projects according to McCalls pattern, they were fairly simple.
So, with a few bits of scraps and some accesories I have put together an outfit! I hope you like it. :)
