Rated 5 out of 5 by OlivesYum Shape-Saving Satin
This is a much stiffer satin than I have worked with before. It wouldn't be good for pajamas or anything that is meant to be cuddled, but for dresses or skirts, it is an excellent choice. This satin keeps its shape much better than some of the softer satins. I made a doll dress with this fabric, and the skirt kept the bell shape much better than softer satin, that would have just fallen flat at the hips.
This fabric pins and sews beautifully, and but with the low sheen, you may want to consider working this with a contrast fabric (either a shinier satin or a costume sequin, which I used).
