I'm in love with the entire line of Tahari stretch satins! They're all stunningly beautiful, with rich, luminous colors. This one is a deep blood-red, very thin and lightweight, with exquisite drape. It's thinner than charmeuse, with a more subtle sheen. It's not as difficult to sew with, either, although it does present some challenges. Technically, it's a stretch satin, but it's only 10% stretch---just enough to give it a slight give, so it drapes perfectly.
I use the Tahari satins to make evening gowns for dolls, but they could work for any number of things. My only concern is that the fabric does fray easily, so make sure you finish your seams. Other than that, I highly recommend it!

Remover the word Stretch from the name of this fabric.
