Make Crushed Velvet | Insider Video

Learn how to make crushed velvet by steaming the fabric.

Jul 11, 2018
Crushed velvet has a luscious texture, and you can make it yourself.  In this Insider video, Kenneth D. King shows you how. Start with a silk, rayon, or silk-rayon blend velvet. Twist the fabric to establish an array of irregular creases, then steam it for 20 minutes. Unwind the yardage and let it air dry. Voilà, you have created crinkled velvet. Try making a skirt, easy-fitting tunic, or a cape with the textured fabric.

    How do you care for the fabric without having the crushing come out?
