Velvet….Perfect for all occasions!

I’m having a bit of a velvet crush at the moment. The latest trend can be worn day or evening and looks great as a slouchy pair of trousers or a fitted dress. I’ve put togther a few sewing sums using velvets and my inspirations to wear them. Want to see some more stunning velvet ideas? Pop over to my Pinterest board.

See all of our velvet fabrics here.

A pair of slouchy velvet trousers is right at the top of my velvet lush list this Christmas, I will be wearing them with trainers by day and adding heels at night! The Alexandria trousers and Damson Velour is the winning combo!

For a pop of velvet how about adding a baby pink jacket over a black polo neck and a pair of smart black trousers? Use the Grainline Morris pattern with our Cotton stretch velvet in baby pink.

Like your trousers a little more tailored? The new pattern from Named, Tyyni cigarette trousers would be sublime in this Wine stretch cotton velvet.
Got a party or 2 to go to? How about a velvet skater dress? Use our Velvet jersey in a bright wine to make a Moneta dress to really stand out in a crowd. Easy and eye catching! 

Finally, add a bit of pattern to your velvet with the Masters floral print velvet, use simple pattern like the Agnes to show off the design and make it ideal everyday wear.

Also, check out the Velvet Grecian dress in Last Decembers Love Sewing magazine that I designed!
