It's very very shiney, probably polyester.

But I can't decide if I like it enough to make anything with (or even what to make). One minute I think it's so ugly that it's actually fantastic, the next I think it's definitely going on the ebay pile. There's about 2 1/2 metres. Any ideas?

Looks like it would make a great fan shaped bag like in the geisha swap.

I think it would look good as a dress (off the shoulder, little black dress style)

Does it have any stretch to it? and what kind of weight is it (llike soft and flowy vs stiff and crisp)?  I personally think that it's a really keeper - I see lots  of potential.

Yeah, it's knitted and quite fine. It does flow very well. I am getting more attatched to it.

Since it has stretch, you can always try using it as a wrap dress (I think that the print is perfect for this, since most of the wrap dresses I've seen look best in wild prints) or some sort of close fitting top.

If the print seems too overwhelming, maybe you can just use it as an accent piece (like the binding on a shirt and use some if it in a panel of a skirt to coordinate, etc.)  I can't wait to see what you decide to make with it!

I'm with Stacy....this has great potential!
See if the Quickie Dress appeals to you http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0 (with the amount of yardage you have you might want to have the skirt not quite so full, but apparently that's not that great of a problem)
