Velvet-the fabric of the season

Added Nov 1, 2016

velvet it’s back in vogue and frankly I’m glad about :-)
Today I tried new pattern for it, a pair of leggings and a blouse. I made in past a dress in velvet but dresses are common in this fabric.
It toke less than 2 hours to make both.
I’m very content with the result, was very courious how will look and fit.
I might say I totally love it! :-)
For leggings I used burda pattern, I used an wide elastic for waist and fake zipper in front.
For the blouse I simply placed another blouse that I like on the fabric and use it as pattern. The fabric it’s black elastic velvet and had to cut arms to put them separately taking care of fabric elasticity.
Now it’s only a matter of mood and taste to style it :-)
Thank you for watching!
