Thanks for sharing your experience. Smile

I haven't told the others yet, but I count on using a cotton voile as an underlining if the velvet and washed satin proves too slippery. That's what I do with my silk velvet and it's essential with that fabric. Wink Might get a walking foot, too.
Of course, it will add a little to our overall cost, but I'd rather pay a little extra to get a good end product. And luckily cotton voile is pretty cheap.

The good thing about washed satin is that it is less shiny than your regular satin. Looks like sandwashed silk actually. Very nice medium sheen.
