Fabric perfect for the purpose; service excellent
I needed the fabric for a stage costume. Okay, 8 stage costumes - specialty drapey pants. It prewashed beautifully - and probably didn't need to be prewashed, but I wanted to soften it up a teensy bit with washing soda. It dried in about 30 minutes - which considering I had 15 yards (and then 10 yards more), was very quick. Hardly needs ironing. Perfect weight and drape for the pants I was making. Also, it was pretty much straight on the grain - a miracle considering the extremely low price. Also, they weren't kidding when they said 57".
Service was excellent. It arrived promptly on a heavyweight cardboard roll. I asked for expedited shipping on the second 10 yards because a deadline was looming and I didn't want to take a chance . . . but I probably could have saved the money because the first order was shipped VERY promptly and arrived when they said it would.
One note: being 80% polyester and very closely woven, it was hard on my sewing machine needle (my usual size 14/90). But if you find this to be the case, treat the fabric like a quilting batik (which for different reasons has the same problem) and go to a 70/10 needle and all problems will disappear.
