Matt paint on silk

Hi, we painted plastered walls a dulux silk but it didn't look very good. We sanded it down to 'roughen up' and painted over in Dulux Matt paint of the same colour. The paint has gone on well but in some lights it very patchy - it looks like areas of silk underneath can be seen through the Matt paint despite doing several coats of Matt. Want to get it repainted professionally but what is the answer to getting an unpatchy finish? Thanks in advance!

Has the paint dried? matt over silk takes quite a bit longer to dry but, off hand, I can't see why there should be an issue in your case
