Anyone have a secret source?!

This year's Renaissance gown is going to be in the Saxon style immortalized by Lucas Cranach the Elder. I am looking for some lightweight gold/golden yellow velveteen or cotton velvet for the contrast panels in the skirt/bodice. I am finding *gads* of stretch velvet, velour, panne, & spandex (ie, lots of knits and dance fabric) in gold and yellow, but very little in the way of velveteen. Even a nice lightweight true velvet would be OK, if such a thing exists.

It needs to be fairly lightweight b/c it has to play nicely with the linen I'm using for the main body of the gown. (This was supposed to be a stash project, but I came up short on the gold fabric I was planning to use, and I'm scrambling for a replacement.)

I found this listing for "triple velvet" on ebay that seems to be describing itself as lightweight (not sure what that photo with the gauge is trying to tell us?), and acetate/nylon *sounds* like it would be fairly lightweight, but it's hard to tell for sure.

Help me, PR Fabric Gurus! Who knew it would be so hard to find gold velveteen?!

Thank you!!

Cotton velveteen is getting fairly hard to find. Last week, I saw some in Kelly green and some in hot pink at JoAnn's. I was very surprised to see it particularly at the beginning of summer. You might check online with them and see if they carry gold.

Try Fashion Fabrics Club. I have gotten beautiful cotton velvet from them before.
