Why did you choose this?
can you use this velvet for a jacket?
BEST ANSWER: Not really. It is very lightweight and super stretchy, so it would need a heavy lining to hold its shape, and it would drape more like a sweater.
Is this material velvet looking on both sides?
BEST ANSWER: No, like most velvets, the "velvet" is only on one side. The back is smooth and a slighly lighter shade of black than the velvet side. You will probably want to add a lining if using this fabric for projects where the reverse side will be visible.
Can you see thru it?
BEST ANSWER: If you hold the fabric, single layer, up to a strong light, you can somewhat see light through it. It is not transparent when wearing it.
would this fabric work for table runners for a wedding?
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is slightly stretchy and "slinky", meaning it would slide easily over most table surfaces. If you simply want a stripe of color over an existing fabric tablecloth, it would look beautiful. If you want to make something a little more structured or runners that will be placed directly on the table surface, then you would need to back this fabric with a firmly woven, non-slippery fabric like cotten or cotton/poly broadcloth.
Could I use this for a cape and would it have to be lined?
BEST ANSWER: You could and I would line
Can I paint on this velvet?
BEST ANSWER: I suppose you could, BUT it is stretchy and considerably thinner than regular velvet. The nap is different, too; it sort of lies in one direction like fur. It's great for sewing garments as a medium-light weight knit with a velvet look, but I doubt if it would be ideal as an art canvas. You could always buy a sample and test it with your paint.
I want to make a nehru jacket .will this velvet work?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this fabric would work for a Nehru jacket but would need to be lined.
will Panne velvet work for a light jacket?
BEST ANSWER: I think it would, depending on the style of jacket you want to make. It is a fairly lightweight knit, so has some stretch and nice drape which would work well in a less structured style like McCall's 7290 or 7331. For a more structured jacket like Vogue 9099 or 9095, you could fuse knit interfacing to the yardage before cutting out the pieces to make it more stable. It would still have the drape, but seam shaping would be easier. Either way, you will likely want to line it for fall or winter wear.
Very lovely fabric, a little thin, but quite nice.

My only dislike is that the material is thinner than what I would like it to be, but I like it overall & will reorder.
