I ordered denim and got a free bundle. Two of them I can readily identify and know what to do with. I got some cotton quilting fabric and black either what is lining or lighter blouse fabric (not as silky as the lining I usually buy).



Then I got purple something, slight stretch, medium weight, poly something or other. Heavy blouse, light pants or a dress?


Then I got the fabric that is the reason for my post. Do people make their own panty hose or something? What is it and what is it used for? Costumes? Dance? I don't get it.

Hmm. Maybe a sheer long sleeve top to go over another short sleeve or no sleeve?

That's tricot knit - usually used for lingerie, sometimes used as lining under sheer fabrics or to give an illusion of bareness for dance/skate costumes.
That is quite the mix in the mystery bundle!

Thank you Becky! It is incredibly stretchy. So you line a sheer knit with it?

I like the orchid colored fabric. If you have enough of it, I think it would make a nice light-weight jacket.

Oh, I like that idea. I have at least 2 yds. I could use my black lining that came with it.

Yep, tricot.

I found some at Walmart recently, on the $1 yd. table, and when I went to go get some more it was gone.Oh well, I got 3 yds. so that'll last for a bit.

I still think you should make your own pantyhose.


I have used illusion fabric for skating dresses, but never thought about using it to line thin knits. That's a good idea - because it seems like so many of my knits are almost see through.
