How do I wash, sew, iron velvet stamped fabric?

Hi,
I bought this purple velvet fabric several years ago at Walmart. I want to make a top, but I don't know if I should prewash it or not. Also, what about pressing seams? My pattern is very simple so I don't think it will need much pressing.
Thanks for your help,

I think I test a sample like you said. This fabric was real popular a few years ago, but I don't remember much about it.

There are a lot of stretch velvets out there too. If its one of those make sure your pattern is for knits.
