Velvet Christmas Dress

Happy Holidays!  I hope you are having a stress free and relaxing season.

I'm really excited to share my latest refashion with you.  This out dated dress was a hand-me-down from my mom. I loved the gorgeous green velvet and knew it would be perfect for Christmas.

I decided to use only the sleeveless shell dress and not the jacket. The jacket is now sleeveless (you'll see why in my post), but I hope to refashion it in the near future. Any suggestions?

I cut some length off the bottom of the dress and used this excess fabric to make the sleeves.

I loved how it turned out.

You can find the details for this refashion on my blog.
