  • Note: This fabric is so soft and drapey.

Measurements: 38" x  4 yards

Condition:  Good. There are about 3 holes that I saw and a couple pin-size holes that will need to be cut around and one area where there is slight discoloration (see last photo). Overall, this piece is very usable and could accommodate a full 3-4 yard pattern. Priced accordingly.
