Yaya Han Fabric Review: Part 2!

This year for Denver Comic Con, they announced Frank Miller as a guest, and I immediately decided to make a new Elektra (he’s the creator of her character). The plan was to use already owned black spandex that I have, but after a giant issue with my patterning, I realized I needed to purchase new black spandex. As such, I said I might as well do another Yaya Han fabric review and purchased the 4-Way Stretch Matte Black Spandex.

I got a few yards and set to work. The major noticeable thing with this fabric is it doesn’t have a right side and wrong side, as it looks the same way on both. It is very much 4-way stretch, which worked perfectly for all the pieces to my Elektra costume variant I made. The fabric sewed very well, going smoothly through my machine and due to the stretch, I didn’t have to use a ton of elastic on pieces I probably would have had to using my other spandex choices.

My new Elektra using Yaya Han fabric! Pardon the shot in the kitchen, but this was my test wear!

The fabric also wears well, since it’s matte and stretchy, and it wipes off dirt and such with ease, as I learned when I missed a spot dusting around my machine and found it with the fabric. Needless to say, I highly recommend this for any costume needing stretch to it! Can’t wait to see what I create next with it! 😀
