The first week of Refashion Runway gave all of us the chance to work with velvet, or velvet-like fabrics. It was great to see what each contestant came up with! Make sure you head over to The Renegade Seamstress to enjoy all of the creativity and to vote for your favorite!
I started with a strapless velvet dress, a sequined top, and a collar left over from a previous refashion.
Thanks to this challenge, I am now ready for holiday parties!
