Welcome to our monthly handmade style guide, where we feature all handmade all the time 🙂
I am really noticing a trend in the last month, and feel it is going to ROCK 2017; velvet! Soft and flowly velvet dresses, Embellished jackets, velvet hats, vintage velvet, Victorian style velvet, and so much more!
Soft romanticism has never gone out of style, it now only seems to be really coming back. Velvet’s soft glow seems to flatter all bodies, and brings a lovely glow to all that wear.
Velvet was once( and can still be) very expensive and was reserved for only the very wealthy. There are many different types of velvet, including: Chiffon velvet, Cisele,crushed, burnout,embossed, hammered, velveteen, silk….the list goes on! My personal favorite is silk velvet, it is shiny and the softest and most luxurious.
Let’s take a look at some amazing handmade products that feature velvet!
