Can someone help me identify the fabric used in this jacket? Initially, I thought it was some variety of velvet, but then I got some screenshots in different lighting and no longer think so. It looks much more lightweight.

(Any thoughts on the lapel fabric, as well, would be so very appreciated!)

Jacket pictures - just click on "Jacket" and enlarge the photo. I'm so sorry to have to link to my blog, but I tried a direct link with Photobucket and it automatically redirects to a shrunken version. Sigh.

I'd also like to confirm that the fabric used in the bodice link on that page is likely some type of diamond pattern brocade (haven't found anything like the pattern in searches, so I'm starting to have doubts!)

Maybe it's my browser acting up, but I don't see a picture on your blog. I don't see anything but your title marquis or whatever you call it.

The jacket fabric reminds me of upholstery chenile, and damask may be another possibility for the bodice.

The jacket pics.

I think it is some kind of velvet, there is texture and depth like velvet. Perhaps a cotton velvet with some texture. The lapels look like brocade.

The bodice pic.

Brocade or something like a silk shantung with pintucking in a grid plus beading. I have seen that type at Hancocks fabric in the drapery section.

The jacket definitely looks like a cotton velveteen to me. Can't make out what the collar looks like clearly enough to guess.

I agree, the bodice looks like a fancy drapery fabric with beading.

Thanks, Liz, for reposting the pictures.

Thanks so much for the input, guys. (And sorry again about the photo issue.) I'm glad to be able to dive back into fabric searching, this time armed with better info!

I thought that it was velvet as well. Cotton velvet has a low pile or maybe velveteen. Have you looked at B & J's website? They have fabulous brocades on line. The bodice looks like an embroidered velvet to be honest.
