I’ve been busy again reviewing some fabric for Minerva Craft- this time a pleated velvet jersey. I had only planned to make a skirt, but my skirt ended up being an experiment in how to create a maternity waistband, and I ended up with some fabric left over for a little top too.
See the rest of the pictures and details of the construction here on the Minerva crafts blog. Something that I forgot to mention on the blog post was that this fabric doesn’t fray at all, which is awesome, because I decided not to hem anything! I wasn’t really sure how to hem this without loosing the pleats, so not hemming was an easier solution.
