I got this fabric to make new draperies for my bedroom. I am ecstatic over how beautiful they look. This is the BEST fabric I have ever used to make draperies. So easy to work with. Its not too light weight nor is it too heavy. Although it says to dry clean only, I cut one test panel to size, surged the raw edges and washed it in hot water and cold rinse then machine dried. It came out very nice. I re-measured and the shrinkage was approximately 2 inches. II then cut all the panels 2 inches more on all sides and then washed them as I did the test panel. Ironing was a breeze with cotton setting & steam. Now when I need to launder them they will only need a bit of ironing and no worry with shrinkage. Also there was no dye loss. Another excellent bonus. I would like to see this fabric as a staple fabric on Fabric.com So many wonderful colors to choose from too. * the valances were also made from fabric I bought here.
