Opulent, sumptuous drapey silk velvet in clear turquoise printed with satin black abstract dots. Silk velvet appears delicate but in fact is a workhorse fabric which takes as well to the street as the ballroom. You can take different approaches to sewing with it depending on the result you want. Beat it up! Toss the fabric in the washer/dryer before cutting. Take care every step of the way, but this way you get the feel of working on the fabric upping your skills. When finished, wet at pleat/crinkle. OR...keep it smooth and flat. This takes more care, patience, practice and skill. (I recommend you start with a project that is crushed or crinkled). Your ‘touch’ and how you handle the fabric make a big difference every step of the way. For a dress, skirt, vest, jacket, pants. Crushed/pleated soft silk velvet pants are a staple in my winter/holiday wardrobe.
Pre-treat: steam/dry clean to keep the original texture or toss in the washer/dryer.
