I have a couple of metres of a gorgeous silk velvet, and want to make a jacket, but I’m not sure which pattern would work with the silk velvet fabric.
I love this one:
Open Front Jacket (Plus Size) 11/2012 #144
- it’s meant to be made in brocade.
Does silk velvet come under the ‘light weight, softly draping fabric’ category that so many patterns state as suitable material?
If anyone has any tips, I’d love to hear from you.

Wash in hot water and hang up, perhaps use a garment steamer to take out wrinkles.
Hello, I am just starting mine. I will post a link tomorrow!
I had the same, but everything works now!
