tini,

I haven't felt the buttermilk knit, so I can't comment on that.  As for the onion skin, this is how I would describe it.

It's a very very fine lightweight knit with a kind of crepey texture...I would call it semi-sheer...you can definitely see through it if you hold it up.  I have several maternity shirts made out of this type of fabric and have been looking for it everywhere.  I'm not sure what's in the stores over there, but t-shirts, peasant blouses, and hippie type shirts made out of this fabric are all over the place up here...as well as layered tops...

Hope this helps!

Rebecca

tini,
the buttermilk knit from eos is a very soft, opaque knit made out of polyester.  My guess is that it would be good for tops.  I'm thinking of making a shirt from mine.  I hope this helps!

Tini, I got my order for buttermilk knit today from EOS. It is a smooth, medium top-weight lycra knit. I think the reason it is called buttermilk is that one side is printed and the other side is pure white.

Hi everyone, I was in Hancock's today and thought I would share. They have a knit fabric labeled as "onionskin," so if you have a Hancock's near you and would like to see what it's like, check it out. They had several prints. Ther were also  also solids in a variety called "crinkle onionskin," which was more textured. I have no way to compare the quality with EOS (yet)--my order will probably be waiting for me at home today.

The Hancock's in my area also had a small selection of stretch illusion and stretch lace with the knits in case you are looking for a lightweight stretch fabric to line your t's. The illusion is fairly sheer by itself but might be perfect under a top layer.
