My bathing suit turned out beautifully. Fabric is high quality and was easy to work with.
very good job, thanks for everything
I recommend it 100%, these people are very responsible and the package arrived very quickly
Very nice and colorful fabric! I matched it with the Magic Sangria recycled nylon / spandex to sew a reversible one piece swimsuit. I'm just a little bit worried about the fading of colors in time (see Holly's review). I'll give you feedback in a few months.
This dress turned out great love the fabric
Vibrant at first, but fades after 3 months
I loved this fabric, received many comments on it, that is until it faded and it faded extremely fast. I don’t leave my swimsuits to dry in the sun. I don’t even dry them outdoors in the shade. I have owned about 80 swimsuits being a beach girl/surfer and not one has ever faded this fast and so much loss of vibrancy. I’m bummed because it’s a great print, but I’m glad I didn’t use this fabric for selling swimwear or gifting to friends and family because I would have been so embarrassed. I’m now hesitant to even purchase swimwear fabric from Fabric Fairy. Hopefully, they see this and become more diligent with their fabric process.

Holly....I am so sorry to hear this about the Tahitian Floral. I have already reached out to the supplier of this fabric to make sure they know and are awaiting their reply. I have a feeling the problem is the colors chosen for Tahitian Floral. Fluorescents tend to fade quicker than other colors whether it is a solid swim or printed swim. It certainly shouldn't be completely fading out after 3 months wear though. I appreciate you letting me know and will also email you privately about this matter. ~Meg
