Little Black Velvet Dress

I made this little black velvet dress for some of my holiday festivities.

I loved this burdastyle (12/2013 Designer Masterpiece) pattern, but I can’t say I loved the velvet! I didn’t have all the tools I needed to sew with velvet, so it was difficult to get the results I wanted.

      Thanks Leas-heart-art! I’m fortunate to have a sister as a photographer and I can exchange her skills for alterations done by me! lol

      Thanks Mary! I tried to do something different and fun this time! Black velvet is hard to photograph so I’m glad I got some good photos.

    This dress looks nice on you! You have done a nice job on choosing a shorter length. I have read this pattern several times, as I really like it as well.
