Rated 2 out of 5 by KatyKatIL The backing is like a thick skin.
I think it would depend on what you purchased this fabric for as to how well you would like it. I purchased it for crafting, not for an outfit, because it was the only gold lame in stock
The packaging was very awkward, being shipped on the roll. It didn't need to be, because this stuff isn't going to wrinkle much.
The top has a nice subtle pattern to it, like a faded tiger stripe.
That part was great. It is the BACK that is awful for this one. If you were making a skating costume, it might work well, because there is a LOT of stretch to it, and the thickness wouldn't show a whole lot. But for crafting on small objects, it has been a nightmare! Pins do not want to go through the fabric when you get three layers - it fights back like a wall! I've bent pins trying to get them through, almost poked a hole in my thumb, and finally had to get a wooden stick to force the pin into the styrofoam through this thick skin-like fabric.
No for crafts, yes for skating outfits.
