This extremely soft and plush piled Polyester Stretch Velvet fabric has been blended with spandex to provide a touch of stretch and additional comfort. Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive feel. This elastic fabric is great for dance wear, casual clothing, home décor or costumes, and is available in a large selection of solid colors.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use chalk to mark the direction of the nap on the wrong side. Spread the fabric with the wrong side up or double layer with wrong sides together
  • Use super fine pins and pin together in the seam allowance. Try to avoid marking on the nap itself
  • To avoid stitching problems and ripping baste seams with water soluble thread then baste a second time to fill in the spaces. Stitch with a velvet “V” foot even feed or roller foot. Then press seam open with steam to dissolve thread.
  • When joining velvet to a lining or a smooth fabric, stitch with the velvet on top. Stitch with the nap even if stitching against the grain. Understitch by hand
  • Use a stiff brush to brush away loose pile at cut edges. Finish with a serger, Hong  Kong finish or Tricot binding.
  • When pressing cover the velvet with a thick towel. Do not handle while damp

Care:
To protect pants and skirts from hangers- sew in ribbon hanger loops and hang from ribbon. To freshen pile - hang in a steam filled bathroom for 30 min
