|Fiber & Weave: (Best Guess) Polyester, low-stretch knit (under 15%).|
|Sewing Skill Level: Experienced intermediates will find this fabric fairly easy to sew because; it has less than 15% stretch so it can be handled and constructed like non-stretch fabric, the print does not need to be matched at seams, it's light-mid weight and will move through a sewing machine nicely using a ballpoint or jersey sewing machine needle and pins to keep the fabric under control.|
|Care: Easy care machine wash and dry on normal cycles. This fabric is very wrinkle resistant and could easily be rolled or folded when stored. This fabric was machine washed and dried (fragrance and dye-free), dye-tested, measured, inspected, and ready to cut & sew immediately.|
