Ok so I saw this jacket:

And I loooved the design, which I know I can replicate but...
I HATE brown. And gold accents.
So I'm thinking of doing it in this great dark red velvet I have. But I'm not 100% sure it would translate well with velvet. So I'm here asking for a bit of input. Velvet? Fine-wale corduroy? Or spend the bucks on a nice leather?
Help me please!

I think it would look great in velvet. Personally I think it would be better that way than it is now.

The velvet should hold up very well and look very polished.  Do you plan on lining the jacket?  If the velvet is sturdy enough, you may not need to.  The corduroy would not be as dressy, until it is black - AND you add the studs and grommets (in silver or brass, since you don't like gold).

I wouldn't go with leather personally, but that is my aversion to animal-cruelty talking.  People have differing viewpoints on fashion.

Good Luck and I would love to see the end result!

I think velvet would be perfect.

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

I think cord would be nice, in a deep blue shade, with silver accents.

I think the velvet would look amazing

ahh, thanks for the input! Looks like I'll finally have a use for that velvet I've had forever.
Now I just need to start the pattern alteration and muslin process... I'll post pics when I have the muslin where I want it to show y'all my progress!

Ive just been doin some manipulations in fabric samples and have done something exactly the same as the ruching on the jacket, i cut strips or curves double the length and gathered the top and bottom of the strip to get the effect u have on this jacket, just make sure u leave extra for seam allowance x
