Hello!

A good friend of mine is having a winter wedding and wants cloaks for herself and the 2 bridesmaids.

We found the most perfect fur trim at Dressew (faux and looks so real!) but it's been a real challenge to find the fabric for the actual cloaks!

Does anyone have suggestions/sources for material online? So far we've been looking at velveteen, brushed twill and wool blend suiting. Ideally any bottomweight that's matte and saturated in colour. We need cream and black but haven't decided on the final metreage.

Wool melton would be lovely, but it's far too costly. We must keep this as cheap as possible. Toyed with with idea of using the crepe side of crepe back satin, but fear watermarks if they get caught out in the snow, it's also too lightweight.

I've got a couple of samples en route but am seeking other suggestions.

Thanks!

I don't know if this will be helpful, but a few years back I attended a winter wedding, and the bride wore the most beautiful white velvet cloak with a deep hood. When she arrived at the reception she let the hood fall, draping around her shoulders--it was absolutely spectacular. I wonder if you could find an internet source for velvet--it doesn't have to be fabulous quality--you are just going for effect--and you could line with a satiny lining.
