How To Remove Stitch Marks

Hi Andy, I have let some darts out on a velvet evening dress and have stitch marks that I would like to try to remove. The dress has only been worn once and was dry-cleaned at that time. Is there a way to get the old stitch line out?
Thanks
Gaye

Dear Gaye: Fashion is on your side. While you may try steaming your velvet, it probably won’t matter. Try getting a nice new or old men’s tie and wrapping it around your waist. It is all the rage in Women’s Wear Daily and it might just cover up the seam marks. Good Luck, Andy
