I made this Seamwork Elmira out of grey stretch velvet. It feels so festive and perfect for this time of year. We were supposed to go ice skating this day and I felt like this was something an ice skater would wear, haha. It was my first time sewing with stretch velvet. It wasn’t too bad but once I finished I realized I should have put my walking foot on my machine! It would have made it even easier. This pattern was pretty easy to follow, too. I definitely want to make this in a lighter knit for spring!
