I see this fabric used in so many places -- as the top piece in an empire-waist dress, in a very sexy nightgown or Little Black Dress, as a special skirt (and one with either a very plain waist treatment or a highly ornamented one -- you'd have to go one way or the other with this fabric, I'd think!), and even as a swimsuit coverup. I also saw a shirt the other day that had a neckline made of self-fabric, gathered and tied in various places; it's hard to describe but it was absolutely fascinating and I think this would be a marvelous fabric to use for that style.
There's almost 70% stretch one way (and 25% the other), for added comfort and interest. At 6.6 ounces per linear yard, the fabric has 4.0 ounces per square yard. Interestingly, I like the way the reverse side looks as well -- that's the side where you can see the lycra threads, which look almost like pinstripes. I could imagine using that side for pockets, cuffs, or other accents.
Shadow Black Crinkle Cut is, of course, colored with low-impact fiber-reactive dyes (just like all of our dyed fabrics). The fabric is actually blacker than the grey shown in the pictures; I couldn't figure out how to show the crinkly texture without lightening the image. If you're unsure please do request a sample!
