stabilizing fabric. In this case a broadcloth in a matching color would serve best I thing. Most other stabilizer materials would be stiff and show through the stretch velvet as a result, using fabric with no stretch will work better. You can starch the fabric before using it to sew, then hand wash the item after it's done to remove the starch and loosen things up again
