Not quite what I expected when I ordered. I probably wanted the 30mm. Don't get me wrong this is a great fabric! Very nice fabric but a bit more sheer than I wanted. I will still use and enjoy it but if you want a heavy weight crepe go for the 30mm. This one is quite light weight similar to the silk satin. I will dye this fabric as it is too sheer for the blouse I'd planned on making. I guess that is why they have swatches! Something to consider before you order.

It's great fabric. A few flaws here and there in the 50 yard bolt but that is to be expected in any fabric. The one thing that I noticed is that it is not as heavy as the 16 mm I get from a different company. They are so different it would be helpful if someone did a weight check to see if it is actually 16mm. Otherwise it looks great and when dyed it's still lovely.

I have used this fabric to line other lightweight fabrics such as thin cotton and silk to decrease the sheerness and improve the body and comfort of the garment.
