I was interested in making the Emerson Pants out of the Silk/Rayon Velvet because I thought it was the perfect pattern to showcase the beautiful drape of the fabric. I have been eyeing the velvet for a while now and thought now was the time to introduce it into my wardrobe! I really believe in either letting the fabric be the "star of the show" or the design. The Emerson Pants have a simple design without too many details or top stitching. I think the front pleats show off the fabric in a really lovely way.
- cut out using a rotary cutter,
- use a walking foot lengthen your stitch to 3mm
- and use lots of pins!
