Slinky knit. It's medium weight, full bodied and drapes beautifully. Has very slight ribbed textured throughout the face.

I've bought that particular fabric one time when I was buying a lot of different slinky fabrics for my business. It's very drapey, and a classic slinky, but the dots are flocked on, and I had trouble sewing over them. The thread on my serger kept breaking, and by the time I was done with the jacket in that fabric I was gritting my teeth. Just something to keep in mind. Just to let you know, I buy a lot of slinky, and that is the only fabric that ever happened with, normally flocked slinky is fine to sew with.

I have found slinky to be a heavy fabric.

Slinky does have a tendency to grow lengthwise during the day. I put a lightweight clear elastic in the shoulder seam. A tshirt made from slinky is a fast and easy serger project. I wash and dry mine in the washer and dryer, roll it up and put it in the dresser drawer.

Slinky tee 2

They are both still going strong and have had quite a bit of wear. One is made from the more expensive type of slinky and the other is made from cheap swap meet stuff.
