Description

Blue velvet nightgown with brown trim, my second project with my new sewing machine.

Material Notes

Stretch velvet (very difficult to use, I had the rip the stiching out a few times so I covered up the rips with the brown ribbon). I was going to make matching velvet drawstring pants but the material kept on ripping and shifting while I tried to sew it. I eventually gave up, good thing the fabric was free from a friend of mine who used to design clothing in Montreal. He liquidated most of his fabric but gave me what was left.

    Looks very luxurious. Enjoy wearing after all the frustration.
