I Love Velvet! When You Wear Velvet, You Immediately Step Up Your Game.

And Velvet is the Softest and Most Comfortable Fabric to Wear. In any Season.


This Holiday Season, One of My Favorite Shoppes – Anthropologie – Is Showcasing Beautiful Velvets.


I'm in Love! But Velvet is Pricey...


THE CHALLENGE...CAN WE CREATE A LUSCIOUS VELVET TOP WITH 2 YARDS OF FABRIC FOR UNDER $20?

Let's Go!


The Fabric….Midnight Black Velvet – Amazon… LINK.


2 Yards is More than Enough for this Simple Tank Top.

The Pattern is Super Easy. 2 Pieces. Front and Back.


The Pattern – Amazon… LINK.

When Working with Velvet, Lay Out the Fabric and Smooth it With Your Hand…


The Fabric Nap should flow in the Same Direction.

Now You’re Ready to Lay out the Pieces.

Cut the Front Piece. Cut the Back Piece.

Sew Shoulder Seams and Side Seams.

Add Facing to the Armholes and Neck.

Hem the Bottom.


And Your Sewing is Done!

Take a Moment to Press All the Seams. Iron on the Wrong Side of the Velvet to Prevent Marks.

That’s It!

Dress it Up or Down.

Cozy. Snug. Oh So Soft.

Bring on the Holidays!

Casual and Fancy and Loaded with Magic!
