So ‘Devore’ popped into my mind and before I knew it, I was on the internet looking at Devore velvet fabric. I thought it would be cool to have a Devore T-shirt. Don’t ask me why but sometime I get an idea or an inspiration and I have to get it out before it haunts my sleep.
Browsing through the website, I found a lot of unattractive Devore fabric but then happened to stumble on this really interesting camo-like Devore velvet fabric. As the price was reasonable, I bought a metre to test it out as I have too often bought metres of a fabric online only to be disappointed when it arrived. So was I disappointed again? A resounding no. I was actually quite surprised.
This fabric had a good stretch/recovery and for a velvet fabric, was quite easy to sew.
I know what some of you are probably thinking right now. Are you going clubbing? Tsk! Tsk! I believe garments can be appropriated in a way that fits a certain style without it looking cliched. I have been wearing high-waisted trousers lately and I like this T-shirt and high-waisted trousers combo.
I love the feel of this fabric and it breathes really well compared to other velvet fabrics. The colour/sheen of the fabric also changes due to the nape of the velvet. I am tempted to get a few more lengths of this fabric. After all, it’s not often that the product is better in real life compared to when it’s on the screen.
