I picked some up when it was on sale at Girl Charlee fabrics.
As it’s name sounds, scuba is similar to neoprene, except much thinner and better suited to garments and accessories (think laptop cases).
Having several wetsuits from our more liquid hobbies hanging in the closet, I was intrigued by this new arrival. Never having seen scuba in Ready to Wear, I can’t say if my fabric is excellent, medium or poor quality.
What I can say is that it sews up easily. It has stretch for wearing comfort, but not like a t-shirt knit. I left the top unhemmed, as scuba doesn’t ravel. Use a simple pattern – you don’t want a lot of intersecting seams. Scuba builds up thickness quickly.
The verdict is still out on how it will feel in warm weather (we’re just heating up this month). So, something new, and blue and Ready for Me to Wear.
