Border on bottom of fabric

I am making some cream velvet curtains with a gold velvet 45cm border at the bottom. Should I sew the gold border onto each cream width firstly, then sew the downward lengths together, or should I sew all the cream together, then the gold together, then sew the top to the gold making sure the seam lines match up? Also, should velvet be smooth when stroking it down, or smooth when stroking it up?
