Lovely quality, light weight, opaque, with a smooth hand and liquid drape. The jacquard weave gives a bit of substance and subtle textural gleam. Right for a dress, shirt, tunic, skirt, soft pants, kimono, caftan, jumpsuit and would make a sumptuous lining.
Cut fabrics like this one using paper. Lay down a layer of paper on the cutting table, and trim the ends so they are straight, at right angles to the other edge. This assures that you can line up the grain of the fabric with the edges of the paper. Place the fabric on top, smoothing so the grain is straight... this is key! Then pin the pattern through all layers and cut through all layers. The bottom paper layer keeps the soft fabric from shifting as you cut and allows you to move and mark the pieces without distorting.
Pre-treat by dip in cool water and air dry.
