Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you. I am all smiles right now because it is fall 🍁, and it is my favorite time of year. I love watching the leaves change from green to reds and oranges. I love decorating the outside and inside of my home with pumpkins and fall decors, but most of all, I look forward to fall because I get to pull out all of my velvet clothing and make new ones for this year. Today I am going to share my new me made outfit with you, as well as include a few photos of my favorite velvet garments that I have created so far, so keep on reading.
For my first look, I used two different patterns to create a full outfit. The first pattern that I used to make my top is the new fall pattern from McCalls Pattern company, M7836. For my pants, I used Simplicity 1283 by Mimi G.
Fabric Used: I used a gold metallic velvet fabric from Promenade Fabrics.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow. Both pieces were easy to make as well, I finished both in under an hour (not including cutting the pattern pieces).
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any alterations nor modifications, it was perfect as is.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would definitely use both patterns again. I have already used Simplicity 1283 to make several pants.
Conclusion: I love both patterns, and I am very happy with the outcome. What I love most is that I was able to use two patterns to create a beautiful and luxurious outfit that I can also wear separately with different garments.
I absolutely love velvet, it’s soft, warm, and beautiful to look at. I have already created a few velvet pieces this season. Please continue scrolling to see my favorite velvet garments that I created. Thank you guys so much for taking the time to read my blog, I truly appreciate it.
