    I'm sure you remember this fabulous dress Maggie modeled several months ago. I posted her photos for my Facebook group--Sewfari Divas. The fabric is woven, not a burn out.

    One member looked it up and found this video which I think you'll enjoy:

    Yes, everyone has enjoyed the dress.

    Thank you for sharing that, Claire. I had only heard of this velvet mentioned in old books, but had idea how intensive the work is, or how it was actually done. I loved seeing all the tools involved.

    It could also be a burn-out or devore'.
    Here are two photos of a 1860 Worth dress. It is cloth of silver with cut and uncut velvet. This is an old picture of the dress. I don't have a good photo of the dress, but I do have more details.
