I’ve been running away from velvet since 4th grade when my godmother made me a green velvet pinafore, which was more like a long tube of elastic velvet with two fat straps and a piece of cotton lace dyed green. I couldn’t say exactly why I disliked this garment of even why I kept running away from velvet ever since, but as they say, time heals everything :D and I am now again tempted to do something with velvet.
I also like these burgundy-red wide leg velvet pants from Free People. It seems they’re not selling them anymore but I think these are pretty straightforward to make if you’ve made pants before.
What about you? Do you wear velvet? How?
