Rated 4 out of 5 by hickoryislander Drapes very nicely
This fabric was a little thinner than I expected, and at first I wasn't sure it would work for the dress I was making that is tighter on top but has no lining. Fortunately, it drapes very well. And although this is a lightweight fabric, it isn't sheer at all which I'm always worried about. As stated, it also has a great deal of stretch (which accounts for the draping) so it is easiest to sew with some tissue paper.
I found the red color to be true as pictured, but the stripes appeared black to me, when they are actually coal-grey.
All-in-all, I was pleased with this fabric and I recommend it for any draped apparel, looser fitting tops or dresses. While it is suitable for tighter items, I would hesitate if you have any extra weight to hide as it really doesn't leave much to the imagination.
