Hey guys! I recently shared a full tutorial to make your own pattern plus a sew-a-long for this boho stretch velvet dress on Fabric.com’s blog, and I want to share it here too. I walk you through the steps of how to work with stretch velvet, how to draft your own pattern using Deer and Doe’s Plantain Tee (free pattern) as a starting point, and then how to sew it all together.

I fell in love with the current velvet trend, and immediately went on the search for what kind of garment I should make with it. I found velvet everything, which didn’t make my search any easier. I also noticed stretch velvet all over Nordstrom the other day, this trend is huge! I came upon this designer dress while searching around online, and I fell in love with it!

I love the prairie style of the skirt, the gathered waist and yoke. After looking at it for a few minutes I realized it wouldn’t be too hard to re-create. So, this is my spin on the Paulina Dress by Ulla Johnson. (Just a side note, Rachel Zoe posted this dress on her Instagram Stories a few weeks ago too, so you know it’s good!). Hope you love it as much as I do.

Did you know stretch velvet is a dream to wear!? So comfy!I used this dark gold stretch velvet from Fabric.com. I absolutely love it, the color is so rich and yet a little different too.

You can find the whole tutorial here! Enjoy!

  1. Oooooh…. It´s so amazing Sara!!

    Just love it and now I really need one!! I´m really into this velvet obssesion too so I went to the shop last week and I bought some in red and in a color quite similar to yours, and also both of them are stretch. Let´s see what kind of projects can I do with them, cause I was thinking about shorts and skirts…

    Thanks so much for sharing! Fabulous as always!

    Lots of kisses,
    Arancha.
