Refashion Runway Sew Along: Velvet

I'm so excited that Refashion Runway Season Four: All-Star Edition is just two days away! Like, seriously :)

I'm leaving for vacation on Saturday, so I wanted to post my sew along before then. Spoiler alert, if you haven't read the challenges for this season, it's velvet :)


I had been saving this Sparkly velvet dress for the holidays... but, hey, there's no harm in getting a head start, right?

I cut off the built-in vest, and used a Maxi Skirt as a template for size.


Then, using a trick from Beth's "Refashion Handbook" I made some cap sleeves out of the original ones.



I sewed them into my new dress Right Sides Together.






Be sure to tune in on Saturday and vote for your favorite Refashions. And, sew along too. It'll be fun!

Thank you so much! I'm a little bummed the sparkles didn't translate well in the pictures...

Black velvet is a little hot for the summer but PERFECT for the winter! Lovely refashion!
