Distressing Velvet
I've time looking at velvet et al and been struggling to locate a good one. It occurred to me, whilst playing the game that I'm cosplaying from, being chased by the character I'm cosplaying, that the reason why I can't find it is because the velvet she wears is very old.

But old velvet is expensive, so I need to distress me some velvet/velveteen/velveton and want to know the best method and best fabric to do so. I've heard washing velvet does it. Is that true?

The best way I have found to make velvet look aged to to razor it. When velvet ages naturally, it is areas that get a alot of wear to go first, so arm pits, the hems of skirts, elbows and crotchs. You can use a razor blade to "shave" it down, or sandpaper.
