Hello Ivorivet, in your recent dress you used stretch velour, right? May I know where you bought the fabric from? Cos I tried finding high quality like the one you got, and couldn't find any. Hope you can kindly reply to my question. Thank you.

Sure thing!  I got the fabric from Mood – it’s Sultan Red Stretch Velour.  I absolutely love this fabric and would probably buy it in any different colors available if I needed something that looks like velvet for a future project.  It’s super soft, doesn’t look cheap, and doesn’t wrinkle easily.  I was expecting to need a needle board (a special iron-proof board with a bunch of needles poking out of it so you can iron napped fabrics without crushing the nap) to work with this stuff and not destroy it, but I was even able to carefully press out some seam allowances with a regular iron and not have any visible damage to the nap on the right side of the fabric.  It’s really good stuff!
