A collection of stretchy embossed metallic knit fabric remnants in silver, black, gold and rainbow multicolor dotted lycra. Most of these fabrics date from 1989 when I used them for a show with a post-apocalyptic feeling. Ahhh, the good old days.

You can use these for embellishments, wristlets, cuffs and bathing suits and kids Halloween superhero costumes or glam rock accessories. There's enough to get some good trimming and small scale garments out of, and most of these fabrics you will never see the like of again. The most recent is the rainbow dot material, which is about 7 years old. All were purchased in New York City's Garment district at stores that mostly have disappeared.

I will give general measurements for each fabric. Most stretch only one way unless noted - the more embossing, the more likely it will not be able to stretch both ways equally.

Rainbow Metallic Dot on black: 60 inches long by 21-31 inches wide (width varies die to previous cutting). Good 2 way stretch.

Rainbow Stripe Fireworks: Gray stretch velvet with metallic pattern over: 43 inches along selvage. 12 and 23 inches wide(unevenly cut into - this is a real remnant)

Purple with Shooting Star: 4 by 18 (uneven remnant) best for cutting out stars as applique

Solid Silver on black: Like liquid silver, but a small piece - 22 inches by 29 inches. Stretch is one way.

Raised Silver rectangles on black: 46 inches long by 27 inches wide ( sort of an L-shape due to previous cutting. NOT a rectangle - a corner is cut away. One-way stretch.

Silver lines on grey: 56 inches long by 26-ish inches wide. One-way stretch.

Black Shiny Dot: 68 inches long by 41 inches wide. Good 2 way stretch.

Raised Silver Dots on black: 4 oddly shaped remnants - maybe a yard total if you laid them together. Best for wristlets or trimming or bra top - very sexy and slinky. One-way stretch.

Gold Reptile Pattern on black: 44 inches long by 55 inches wide. One-way stretch.

Gold Textured Metallic: Usable: 19 inches X 39 inches
