Fabric expert wanted
Many moons ago I mentioned that I wanted to alter this huge dress I bought for 1€. Well, turns out that resizing doesn´t do the trick as it´s pretty much shapeless. So I found a pattern that would allow me to reuse all the fabric this dress has to offer and I started to open all seams, highly motivated. It quickly turned out that velvet is a very unforgiving material. My question is: does any of you ladies know how I can get rid of the marks of old seams? Brushing doesn´t seem to do the trick and I would love to work with the material I have (because it doesn´t cost me anything ;)).
