Blue velvet - Member model challenge

This is a lovely velvet dress, made in a fabric that provides more stretch than expected. For this reason, I decided to remove the zipper since it was unnecessary. All the finished seems are hand sewn for a nicer look! I ajused the length of the skirt so it is right below my knee.

Pictures were taken last minute by my close friend Camille using only my cellphone, so that’s why the quality is not the best! But we tried to make it work! Right on time for the challenge ;)

    HOmy first thought when reading the instructions was stretch denim, which my husband objected to, my second idea was velvet but couldn’t find the right colour, cos didn’t want anything dark so I ended up with crepe. Your dress proves that velvet makes every dress look classy and elegant!! Very pretty, good luck!
