I used this fabric to re-line a black wool coat. It is so rich looking and was easy to work with while sewing. The coat now looks like a million bucks!
I saw this fabric as a dress on a mannequin at my local JoAnns and I knew I had to make my own! It's thicker, sturdier fabric, but not unwieldy or difficult to work with. It's soft and flexible, not stiff. It was so easy to work with. I got it online because my store was temporarily out and had a 40% off coupon, which made it really cheap! I love everything about it, and I highly recommend using this or any from this line of brocade fabric!
