Plum Plaid - Silky Stretch Velour; is a very unusual, deep plum velour printed with a faux twill plaid in black and red. It is perfect for festive or occasion wear and could be equally for high fashion, for a costume. whatever it is it will always be striking. This versatile fabric will work whether your style is grungy, goth or glamorous!

This subtly reflective silky velour has a stunning, super soft, velvety malleable handle that begs to be draped, twisted, knotted and tucked. With 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. 

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. 

Need some glamorous and comfy trousers? Make some dramatic palazzo pants from our excellent Silky 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!

Lovely fabric

I was surprised at the quality at the price. Lovely and soft, and a good amount of stretch.
It is a deep red with a lovely shine.

Beautiful colours

This is so beautiful ! Lovely rich colours and beautiful to cut and sew with. Not too heavy either (velour not velvet) so has that luxury look but without the weight. Drapes nicely.
