Why did you choose this?
Is this fabric stretchy?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this scuba is stretchy, but only moderately so. I used mine for pants. I would compare it to a stretch cotton but actually with a bit less stretch . There's a bit of give but not like a soft, stretchy knit by a long shot. I'd leave myself wide-ish seam allowances, take your garment in or out as needed and buy a bit more length than you require. Hope this was helpful!
Can this fabric be used to make a swimmable mermaid tail
BEST ANSWER: Contrary to the name, this scuba fabric isn't the same as something a scuba diving suit is made out of. It wouldn't work for your purpose.
Can this be used for a fittedit table cloth?
BEST ANSWER: It does have a little bit of stretch but it is also not completely smooth. It's slightly textured so it depends what kind of look you are going for.

I am considering this fabric for a pleated stage drape . Would it be appropriate ? I was looking for possibly a polyester double knit fabric . Would it be thick enough ? the stage is 44 ft long and 16 ft wide on each side and 34 inches long
While I have not yet made my intended garment with this fabric, I have laundered and dried it without its shrinking or bleeding. I know enough about the "hand" of this fabric to believe that the tunic I plan to make with it will be just fabulous, and I can hardly wait to buy more of this fabric and hang onto it until I'm ready to use it. If you wait long enough, all kinds of wonderful fabrics get "born" and come down to home sewists everywhere. It was well worth the wait for this fabric! Knit Lovers: This is a "poor" girl's ponte...Yipee!

Have not sewn it yet. Washed it and it stretches and responds as I hoped it would.
