Velvet and Ruffles

I recently made another pair of these “joggers” using Simplicity 8268. I have reviewed this pattern before and it’s one I absolutely love. This pattern is for knit fabric, so for these I used a stretch velvet.

Velvet is very much on-trend these days, so what better way to incorporate that trend into my own sewing than to make something comfy that I can wear every day?

The ruffles part of this post are featured in this MimiG/SewSewDef  “Georgia” turtleneck. This top is so cute and easy to make. I used a cotton interlock I already had in my fabric stash for this.

This can be made in a couple of hours. I really like the length of the sleeves and the bottom hem. It seems that it’s only in sewing that you can get the length you want in a shirt so you don’t have to worry about being over exposed when you bend over! The Georgia turtleneck is a PDF pattern so you can get instant gratification. I’m thinking this would also be great in stretch velvet…
