Fold Over Off the Shoulder Velvet Dress Sewing Tutorial


When it comes to Valentines Day, Kyle and I usually don’t do anything too crazy. We like to make dinner at home and avoid the crowds, and sometimes he indulges me and lets me pick a high quality chick flick. We do, however, love to go out to the symphony in the winter months, and for those occasions, I like to bring out something a little more special!


Clothing Details: Dress – Made by Me (Similar dress in plum, Similar dress with long sleeves) || Earrings – H&M (similar tassel earrings) || Bracelet – Forever 21 (similar gold chain bracelet)

I spotted this stretch, wine colored velvet on Fabric Wholesale Direct’s website, and I just couldn’t say no to it. Draping it in a simple, form fitting off the shoulder style, I think that I’ve created the perfect date night dress! It’s quite comfortable while being sexy and sophisticated as well. Plus this is one of the easiest dress patterns I’ve made – only 3 pieces! I can’t wait to wear it to our upcoming date night to see Yo Yo Ma perform at the Houston Symphony.

For the full tutorial and a link to the truly incredible quality fabric (at a really reasonable price!) head over to the DIY on Fabric Wholesale Direct’s website here.

      1. OMG Crazy Stupid Love is amazing and definitely not a chick flick!! Hahaha I say that because my husband is obsessed with that movie (although that doesn’t mean much, he is pretty sensitive). Haha! 🙂 He loves that, and ANYTHING Nicolas Sparks. I’m surprised he still has a man card.
