I made this dress for a graduation dinner party, from a pattern I use quite often when I am pressed for time. I just added sleeves and a different neckline. Velvet tend to add quite a few centimeters, to even the slimmest of hips and waists, but I love the color and the texture of the fabric. It is pure softness and so comfortable to wear.
The Velvet Shoes rounded the dress off perfectly.
The Black Overlay has tiny sequins that actually has a shimmer
which the camera does not seem to pick up.
I lined the dress with this cotton lycra.
