Rated 2 out of 5 by from very thin; really limp after washing; flaw in lengthwise weave; poor cut Fabric was seriously thin & crispy on arrival, so much so that it felt like a synthetic that might be used as a curtain. It is definitely indigo blue (not almost black, as my monitor shows) with white dobbies. I have a hard time believing that this is 4.7 oz. fabric. I also had my doubts about making a shirt out of such a stiff (too crisp) fabric. I measured the width - actually 58" instead of 56"! Unfortunately I did not measure the length. I washed it on cold with like-coloured clothes and dried it on medium (not low). It softened up tremendously such that it would be comfortable as a shirt, but there is no body to it now. It's also a tad fuzzy if you look at the fabric "horizon" against a light-coloured background. The width shrank by 2" (so NOW 56"). The length is 80" - my order says I got 2 yards (72"), but I thought I ordered 21/2 yards (90"), so make of that what you will. It looks and feels like a sort of microseersucker now. The rectangular white dobbies are also more square-looking post-shrinkage. The fabric is translucent when held up to natural light (window) and may be a bit sheer agains the body, but the dark colour is a protective factor there. I don't know yet if I would have to wear a tank top with this for modesty. Beware the long flaw that runs parallel to the selvedge, about 5¾" from one side - the photo didn't pick this up very well, but it is visible and has a thinner feel than the rest of the (already thin) fabric. The cut was also lacking in precision, about a 2" discrepancy selvedge to selvedge after washing. I'll still be able to make use of this fabric, as I was wanting a casual shirt, but this is going to be REALLY casual, and it might end up with short instead of long sleeves due to the limited amount of fabric available for my use now. If you like the look of the fabric on-screen and don't mind its thinness, then I might suggest hand-washing and drip-drying so as not to get the ultra-casual, microseersucker look/feel.
