#DIY Turtleneck Dress + Floral Velvet Shoes

Hi Darlings, so it turns out that the footage from the SD card is corrupted and not recoverable *insert hysterical crying here* but I did manage to go home on Tuesday, take a cat nap and start filming so you will have a new tut on Friday! This week I will also be creating the trim for my “chanel-esque” jacket by taking apart the fibers in the fabric and creating a braid of sorts, I did order some trim just in case the fibers start getting on my nerve, lol

My turtleneck dress however was a breeze, the turtleneck I used to create the pattern didn’t have princess seams so I added them because I needed shaping and didn’t want to add darts. I drew my princess seam lines right on my turtleneck before cutting it apart (pic below) and then I just used those pieces to create the pattern on paper, added seam allowances and of course length to make it a dress.

I also MUST say that THIS fabric may be my most favorite fabric to work with! it is such a yummy wool/rayon blend that will work for anything; dresses, skirts (pencil), jackets, sweaters it is so versatile and presses like a dream! I need more if it asap in every color and it’s only $15 a yard.
