Black velvet stripes with silver edges alternate with narrow sheer stripes for a soft shimmery effect. Lovely and light yet stable and soft, semi-opaque with some lingerie show through, fine grained texture, crosswise stretch with some rolling at the cut edge. Velvet stripes are 1/4" wide with mesh between the silver double lines. Wear over a tank, slip or cami for a top, t-shirt, tunic, dress, cardi or use as edging or trim.

Silver Lines, Silverado and Silver Streak Velvet Knit are nicely paired and all work together.

Pre-treat by wash gentle and air dry.

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.
