    Another option for a cheap velvet source - curtains. You can definately find some cheap on ebay. I ve also had luck finding the poly silks in curtains.

      Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we are here we might as well dance!

      Hey. I think your best bet would be silk velvet for the coat. It's
      easier to line that in something a bit heavier if you want the coat to
      have more body than it is to make another velvet look more fluid.

      Are you still considering doing the shirt in a pale blue? I think that
      idea would be nicer. Though cream is good too. Just my two cents. I
      wonder about a textured crepe for the shirt? They make "kimono" and
      "elephant ear" crepes that gave a subtle texture to them that would look
      nice. Though, I honestly can't remember the price of them off the top of
      my head.
      I'm really aiming for a soft white colour, just mainly because in most
      of her other designs (I roleplay her online so i like designing things
      for said scenes) she has a white underlayer. Perhaps if I can I will
      make both a white and pale blue shirts. As I said to Catt I'm intrigued
      by the texture of dupion, but I hear its a crisp fabric, and since it'll
      be next to my skin I'd like to be comfy!
      Have you considered buying ready to dye fabric and dying it yourself?
      That would knock a little bit of the price off as well as giving your
      friend another step to document in their project. Which might be kind of
      neat.

      I haven't really considered dying at all. Never touched the stuff, even
      though I have quite a bit of practice fabric lying around.
      and thank you. :) I can't take credit for the embroidery, its borrowed
      from a pair of elves from LOTR.
