Damson Plaid - Silky Stretch Velour is a deep plum velour printed with a faux twill plaid in black and red to add some serious style. It is perfect for festive statement-occasion wear and is equally great for high fashion, costume and glamorous attire. This versatile fabric will work whether your style is grungy, party, period or glam!

This subtly reflective silky velour has a stunning, 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 versatile dresses. 

When you've finished stroking it, 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. Super cosy pyjamas would be great.

Need some glamorous and comfy trousers? Make some dramatic palazzo pants from our excellent Silky Stretch Velour. Keep them super simple and just put in an elasticated waist! Need a quick and simple jacket? This versatile fabric is ideal for kimono jackets, shrugs and opera coat styles to name but a few. Take on the luxe loungewear trend and create matching hoodies and jogger pants for a statement style worthy of any top fashionista! Create '70s vibes with chevron stripes in contrasting colourways, there is a huge range to choose from.

This fabric is beautiful 😍 good quality. I can't wait to use it.

So pleased I took the chance. I'll be making something to wear on Christmas day. It is darker in person than the photos I have uploaded. I bought a few meters of the same fabric in the rioja as well.
