***Fabric is reduced to £3:99 pm see below for link to purchase  


 You will be amazed and delighted at the price





I love this fabric so very much and the style of dress is perfect. Stretch velvet is very luxurious but easy to wear and easy to sew. I think I am going to take it in a bit more in the hips where it is a bit loose. I like short skirts so I took the hem up, but you can make it longer


***** Even better news, the fabric is on sale! At only £3:99 a metre  so grab some now Velvet stretch knit fabric

The pattern requires a zip but when I was fitting it I realised that because the stretch is so good I didn't need one.

As with any stretch fabric bundle it has is essential to let the garment hang for 24 hours before heming and I was glad I did because it did become uneven.





This is a lovely dress and I know I will wear it a lot. Why don't you make one too?


Pattern hack 

I wanted to make a galabeya for dance class. 



I altered the pattern by lowering the neckline and adding around 12" to the hemline. The side seams are split to mid thigh 

I then set to work adding sequins , add as many as you like, and it is now dance worthy and fab. Especially with my coin belt 


Do have a go, and do check out the price of the fabric!  Link here ,
