Rated 5 out of 5 by ash09 Great blackout fabric
What the other reviewers have said: it is 54" wide, very easy to sew (use a denim needle), and works well.
The fabric does not fray, so edge finishes aren't strictly necessary. I found it difficult to press, but didn't bother pressing them (it's just curtains). I've had the finished curtains up since August 2014, and wow, they completely block the light! Excellent value for the price.
I over ordered about half a yard and have been using the scraps to make darted toiletry/make-up bags. The material stands up fairly well by itself, no special interfacing or backing, in a darted bag and the smoother/polyester side can be wiped clean in case of spills.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jborn Width is wider than 54 inches
Because the width listed on the site is not accurate, I ordered far too much material than I needed. Not happy about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kadavis08 Excellent quality and great price
I purchased this fabric to make blackout curtains to hang over two entryways into our formal dining room (AKA playroom/guestroom with futon). I wanted to block light and some sound which could enter the room when guests were sleeping. This material literally let no light through when a flashlight was held up to it! Works perfectly and was easy to sew under a cotton panel. Am using again!
