This week's everyday outfit includes a velvet top that I made recently. It was actually a UFO (Unfinished Object) that has been in my stash since 2002! I cut this top out and for one reason or another never actually sewed it. Now I hate to admit this but I have gained a few pounds since I cut this top out. So I sewed it together with a smaller 1/4 inch seam allowance on the serger in order to make sure it still fit properly. I added a bit of lace at the neckline and sleeves also. It turned out beautifully! In fact it worked so well for work that I think I will cut out more of these tops. It it a very good quality stretch black velvet with a scoop neck and a slight bell to the sleeves.
