i know it's a longshot, but i'm making a dress i saw in a movie, and i'd like it to be as close to the original as possible.

it looks slightly plush and 3-dimensional in closeup, so i was assuming it's burnout/cutout velvet.. but i suppose it could be chenille or moleskin or suede as well.

as to the design/pattern, i feel like i've seen it before, but don't remember a name for it.
sorry the pic is crappy. it's actually a gold design under the red (not white).

can anyone help me out? i've searched google images and ebay and froogle for hours, but no luck as of yet.
(the closest i've seen are here and here)

having the right search terms is paramount, so if anyone has any ideas..  Smiley

there is a good chance this fabric doesn't exist for sale, often on movies and stage shows designers will produce their own custom fabric, or have a textile designer produce some to their specifications.

Maybe you can use a burnout and line it with a gold fabric.

it takes practice to get it right, and it is a somewhat toxic process so i recommend doing it outdoors or in a vacuum ventilation room.
