This is my version of the BurdaStyle – Danielle dress.
Having to work with just a little over a yard of crushed velvet, I had to transform this dress into a sleeveless top.
A little insight on sewing velvet can be found on the BurdaStyle site among many other useful how-tos, some of which I followed sewing the Danielle.
For finishing the neckline and underarms I used the technique described here: sew an all in one facing.
A little blue velvet ribbon accents the cut under the bust and the box pleats create a cute baby doll look.
