This subtly reflective silky velour has a super soft, velvety malleable handle that begs to be draped, twisted, knotted and tucked. Boasting an excellent widthwise stretch with a bounce-back return, it has a firm but less pronounced stretch to the length as well. This fabric is slinky, yet has a reassuring medium-weight handle when used in good quantity, making it perfect for glamorous evening dresses.
Why not add some extra drama by making draped and knotted styles with a wrap front? However, this wonder isn't just for glamorous dresses! We're seeing a definite 90's fashion revival, where velours are fashioned into practical yet 'stand out' slip dresses.
Baby doll styles, which you can wear like tunics, are both practical and luxurious. Think simple roll neck tops and t-shirt styles - perfect for teaming with your favourite jeans. This super stretchy wonder will make easy no-zip dresses. Try skater styles, fit and flare or simple tube dresses and skirts.
