I literally gasped when I walked by this velvet, tucked back in the corner on our velvet rack.
It's a printed cut velvet in a gorgeous peacock design. The velvet is in shades of green, plum, raspberry, and gold; the cut-away areas are sheer grey. We photographed this draped over a piece of white fabric because the sheer areas really show best with a plain, light solid behind them so as not to distract from the wonderful pattern.
This is a pretty large-scale design, so it would work best in a project with large, open pieces and without too many seams.
