Seamless (as possible) black velvet on false wall

Built out a false wall for an AT screen. The screen will take up the entire middle aspect of the wall. I have to cover above it, below it, and the side of the wall. The other side is up against the wall. So I have no problem and no seams at the front. I am really having a hard time (I am not a spacial visualization person) figuring out how to create the side wall with the velvet and having as minimal seam(s) as possible. Any recommendations??

If I am understanding your request correctly, staple the velvet to a new 2x4, frame the 2x4 in against the front wall, then pull it taught around the corner and staple it to the front framing.

Black velvet is very dark. You may not see the seams.

wall to a small hallway seam, if this was black it would be even less noticeable. You staple fabric to a piece of furring, then screw the furring into position and pull the fabric around. Hide the top and bottom staples with molding. The alternative is to do a wall size frame, wrap and staple then mount the frame.
