Rated 4 out of 5 by Ellie35 pretty but very sheer
I realize this says lightweight but I didn't realize the weave was so open that it actually is sheer. The picture makes it look like it's a soft, cozy sweater knit that has some body to it. It is not. Plan on either lining it or using it as a cover up or as I'm doing a cardigan like wrap in which I wear a tank or t-shirt underneath.
Also, because it is so thin and stretchy it is very difficult to cut out the pattern and work with. If you're experienced with this (Like 100% rayons or silks) you shouldn't have any problems.
Shrinkage was minimum.
I expected the pink stripes to be more of a dark pink but they are hot pink which I'm fine with but was just expecting something else.
Overall, I'd say the material is nice and soft considering it has polyester. I just hope this review helps others before purchasing so they know what to better expect.
In the right hands this material could make something fabulous.
*it does have a lot of crosswise stretch!
