I swear to you, neoprene is the shit!!! It’s that one fail proof textile that you can sew-up into the perfect fit. If I find myself needing to make a quick fitted dress or skirt with little to no alterations, neoprene is where I land.
Let’s not even mention that fact neoprene has come a long way in terms of design choices, and weight. This neoprene from Mood Fabrics is a medium weight and very flexible and soft. Who would have imagined incorporating to of my favorite things……….plaid and neoprene!
