The fabric was supposed to be used as lining for a summer silk dress. The color actually was much brighter than I thought from the pictures, so I redied it to match the upper fabric of the dress. The quality was then too thin to use it for the lining of the upper part of the dress, so I only used it for the skirt. Delivery took quite long. Not longer than predicted on the shop's page, but not faster as well.
