Okay, I'm not sure if velvet and velour is really making a comeback or if the fabric store stocking up on Halloween fabric? I've been noticing velvet fabrics appearing at the fabric store over the past few weeks but yesterday I almost let out a bloodcurdling scream when I turned around and spotted a table of velour fabrics.
I'm not kidding.
I wish I were, but I'm not.
And then I laughed at the thought of velour tracksuits making a comeback. Oh gawd, please no!
Even scarier, I have some stretch velvet-like fabric in my stash from the last decade that this fabric was "in" sometime last century. I even have a black with a taupe floral print velvet in my stash. This might be my opportunity to make that 1920's Archival Collection coat and cape from McCall's.
It would make a cute fall coat (that I would have nowhere to wear such a item). Or I can wear it for Halloween by adding a strand of pearls for a flapper look. And then donate it to the Costume Museum of Canada.
This just might be the year that I stash bust all that velvet and stretchy velvet stuff out of my stash without ending up with a track suit [queue the bloodcurdling scream track].
How about you? Will velvet or velour become part of your Halloween look or do you have other plans for this luxurious fabric?
