Pre-wash, dry and flatten your fabric prior to sewing. Use patterns that call for stretch velour, and have simple lines and less tricky details. Ensure your pattern and stretch percentage align - if your fabric has less stretch, consider sizing up. Due to the way the pile is cut, it is important to keep pattern pieces running in the same direction when sewing, otherwise shadowing will be created in your finished garment. Ideally, the nap should run down your pattern. Rub your hand across the fabric to identify nap direction, the nap lays down smooth in the direction of the nap. Ensure to relax your fabric when sewing. A fine, sharp needle and fine thread should be used when sewing velour. A roller or walking foot may be beneficial for sewing velour. Finish raw edges with a serger stitch or encased binding as pile may shed. Finished garments should be washed inside out prior to wearing.
