Whoops, started replying for the snow cape
It's a definite velvet, edged in velvet
Velveteen when washed can looked amazing and has a short enough pile to not look too plush
I wash my velveteen in cold water with lots of conditioner then hang it out on a really windy day or a wet then dry series of days (basically to either smash the creases out in the first instance or hang them out in the second.) Velveteen does tend to creep but not as much as with a longer piled velvet and it is easy to baste or pin the heck out of it.
The shape is more extended than a half circle, this is both good and bad- mainly because piled fabrics have a definite nap so you have to have everything in one direction which winds up costly.
There is piping on her pleats too
Same shade of purple as on the edge of the yoke. Not sure if the piping is velvet as well- it makes more sense to be a satin, in reality anyway
. And I couldn't work out if it was only on the outer edge of the pleats or inner edge too. But I think I saw the blue ray and HD digital are released either now or soon
