Rated 5 out of 5 by McMommy Exactly what I wanted
I purchased this shantung sateen to make a Civil War era ball gown for an upcoming ball, and have not been disappointed. It is a little silky so you have to keep it pinned in place or it will slide around while you are working with it, but that is how it is supposed to be! The body is perfect for a super full hoop skirt, and works up smoothly for a fitted bodice. There will be fray along the cut edges so plan on finishing all edges in your project. I love the color in person but I do recommend ordering a sample to verify that it's what you want. I found the photo on my monitor a little hard to interpret; in person, this fabric is closest to the deep shadowed color shown above. One side has a satiny shine and the other has a raw silk texture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ilsangue Beautiful fabric!
I purchased this fabric to make decorative pillows, and it was perfect. The color is a bit brighter than in the picture, but still a beautiful teal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by missbee I like this fabric but color is different than picture
The fabric is very pretty and dressy, and the quality is good. However, the color is significantly different than the picture. There is much more green to the teal, making it more of a true teal than what you see here.
