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.
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! 😀
