Rated 5 out of 5 by KKnitz Lovely fabric
There's no getting around the fact that this is pricey fabric, but with the help of a coupon I decided to give it a try and purchase a small amount.
It is a nice weight, not heavy, but with more body than most rayon jersey knits. Laundered nicely, with no visible skewing of the fabric. No annoying curl of the cut fabric edges while sewing. Because the fabric was not skewed, and it's a generous width, I was able to get a short-sleeved top (Pamela's Patterns The Perfect T-shirt) and a tank (Silhouette Patterns #500) from my 1.5 yards. This included cross cut strips for neck, sleeve and armhole bindings for both pieces. Still not bargain prices, but not too bad when compared to better RTW prices.
So, lovely quality fabric -- as for whether it's worth the price -- well, that's up to individual budgets. While it won't become my 'go to' t-shirt fabric, I'm glad I had the chance to work with it.
