Thanks for sharing your experience. Smile

I haven't told the others yet, but I count on using a cotton voile as an underlining if the velvet and washed satin proves too slippery. That's what I do with my silk velvet and it's essential with that fabric. Wink Might get a walking foot, too.
Of course, it will add a little to our overall cost, but I'd rather pay a little extra to get a good end product. And luckily cotton voile is pretty cheap.

The good thing about washed satin is that it is less shiny than your regular satin. Looks like sandwashed silk actually. Very nice medium sheen.

I think we (read: I) have found a good fabric for shirt and pants. Very Happy At least the others all liked the swatch, so I count on fabric shopping some more in the beginning of next week.

So, I'm still waiting for a call from the store that the fabric has arrived, and now I'm getting a bit nervous, because I may very soon be leaving town for some time, and therefore really need to pick it up before then. So, crossing my fingers for a call tomorrow. Or friday.

In the meantime; pictures! Very Happy I thought you might like to see the fabrics in question.
