I love this fabric - it made a great troupe costume for a "Grease" song. I used a mixture of black & white fabric for the "boys" & all black for the girls. I colour coordinated the pairs of children & finished off the costumes with gemstones.
Red colour exactly as expected. Nice and shiny.
The Royal Matrix Dot fabric was not actually royal at all and is more of a washed out powder blue. I have bought this fabric before and the colour was fine, my swatch is fine, but there doesn't seem to be very good consistency in the colour. Because the colour is wrong it is not suitable at all and I will have to try to find a similar fabric elsewhere.
