Velvet Dress Refash

Velvet seems to be popular with me this winter. At least I have a use for this beautiful warm fabric! It was been so cold here in Michigan the past few weeks that I haven’t felt comfortable wearing a dress, until this velvet refash!

I love this dress because of its iridescence. At first glace it looks like a black dress, but in the live you can see that it is a combination of teals, purples and yellows. This reminds me of a peacock tail feather!

My 1st order of business was to tighten up the arm holes. I did this by just taking in the sides by 1 inch.

Then I cut a square neckline and pinned this beautiful black lace panel.

I sewed that together and that was that!

Happy Refashioning!!!
