Black on black 1/4" vertical stripes on burnout stretch velvet. Has a flat yet sumptuous velvety surface, silky smooth on the back side, a luxurious hand and fluid drape with crosswise stretch and a touch of rolling at the cut edge. Light weight and semi-sheer in the black burnout areas. Cut for a nap. Dress it up or down, right for a top, t-shirt, dress, skirt, cardigan, soft pants or leggings. Right for a top to wear with jeans or a special occasion dress. Excellent for bindings and trims too.

Devoré  is a fabric technique particularly used on velvets, where a mixed-fiber material undergoes a chemical process to dissolve cellulose fibers to create a semi-transparent pattern against more solidly woven fabric. Devoré comes from the French verb dévorer, meaning literally to devour.

Sewing & Pressing Tips

  • Mark with tailor’s tacks. I use embroidery thread for this as it does not pull out easily. Take one stitch through the fabric leaving 34 tails. One stitch only. Then gently separate the layers and clip the threads. 
  • OR...mark with a dressmaker’s pencil, making a dot at each marking. I lick the pencil  to give it a bit more color and lasting power.

The biggest sewing challenge is to keep the fabric from shifting as you sew.

  • My preferred method is to use a walking foot in combination with spray adhesive like 505 Spray.
  • Cover your work surface with paper, and carefully mask off the seam allowance with paper.
  • Spray a light consistent amount of spray within the seam allowance, then carefully line up the edges, right sides together and stitch. This is quick and works beautifully. It is a little known secret of couture houses that for years the seamstresses have relied on similar spray adhesives for just this purpose.

Pressing: Keep a light hand, use a LOT of steam, finger press, and use a clapper.

Pre-treat by machine wash/dry.
