Velvet dress for curious girl

Added Jan 30, 2011

Helsinki, Finland






I made this velvet dress for my dear friend Noora . The fabric is from an old velvet dress, that I bought from a flea market I work in. The dress was so big, that I could easily cut the patternpieces of it. I’m happy that it turned out pretty well and my friend looks so cute in it!:)

Material Notes

Black velvet




Garment Type

    This is so lovely! I’m really into this shape at the moment, and your dress is perfect. I’m not normally a fan of velvet, but the shine and texture look beautiful here. Really impressed.

    I love this dress! (like all your dresses) Simply beautiful. It kinda reminds me of an Audrey Hepburn dress. Gorgeous job!

      Thank you:) I drafted a pattern that was based on one of my frined’s dresses just to get the measurements right. However I’m sure you can make a dress like this just altering a basic t-shirt pattern:)
