Brown Velvet Danielle

Added Apr 20, 2008

So this is my Danielle! I really liked the fabric Burdastyle used for the Danielle, but this brown crushed velvet was all I could find, I like it though. My choice of fabric became my fate. This is not only velvet, but also a very flowing fabric, so the layers were wandering like magic! I had to baste everything and that not even guaranteed, that the layers would stay where they are! I had to rip open so much seams! But the struggle is finished and I won, muhaha ;) I love this dress and really like how it turned out!

Material Notes

darkbrown crushed velvet (82% viscose, 18% silk)





Burdastyle for the pattern

    How much material did you need? I’m confused about the directions that come with the pattern because they seem so use so many!

    Gorgeous dress and it fits you perfectly. I have this pattern for quite a wile but couldn’t find the right fabric for it. I just bought some elastic velvet, an amazing cognac color. About the slippery layers, would it be ok if I’ll use a walking foot? Or basting is a must?

      Well, try it, but I would recommend basting. It was really unnerving working with such slippery velvet, but worth the trouble in the end :)

    I felt sigh of relief when I read in your description you had the same problem with wandering layers and felt the joy of ripping seams :D

    Awesome! I’d love to make one in brown or black velvet too! Here’s hoping it comes out halfway as good as yours.

    Beautiful! Great scenery. I can’t wait to get up some better pics of my designs. Right now my camera got left behind at my mom’s so I need to get over there and then get busy on some pictures. Your creations are perfect!

    You did such a good job, velvet is very hard to manage in every way.

    Beautiful result. Glad you persevered with the difficult fabric. Sometimes basting every little thing is the only way.

    Your Danielle is so beautiful. Well done on sticking with the project, this dress is so delightful. If it were mine I’d be wearing it until the fabric eventually became threadbare.

    Definitely worth the effort, I would say! And the nature setting background for your pictures is perfect.
