Velvet is really hard to deal with specially with my very simple sewing machine-vintage singer with just straight stitch.
I have added little touch to its pockets, and made elastic wide waist for its trouser. I LOVE it.
I have drawn it then chosen the colors I want to use. I have started by making sequins, then done the inner parts. I have used two sizes of beads, and two sizes of bugles. I also have used two kinds of sequins.
I cannot say that I have chosen everything at once. No actually many times I tried to test the color, and the size by just put it without sewing , and test it, see if I like it or not. If I like it I sew it, if not I changed to another one.
I don't like to use carbon paper and trace tool to draw the motifs on fabrics specially with velvet . Instead of that trace tool I have used running stitch to draw the motif- as you see in the picture.
