Lovely rayon

I always pre-shrink my fabric prior to sewing. I have completed pre-shrinking the rayon, but haven’t sewn it yet. I can say that it comes out of the dryer very soft, and drapes beautifully. For the price, this is exceptional fabric. I’ll be back for more.

Great fabric for vyshyvanka

I ordered few yards to make me vyshyvanka. The quality of fabric is superb. It is nice and silky on touch, light weight but not sheer. It looks similar to cotton but nicer. My machine had no issues embroidering it and putting it together. I will order this fabric again.
