Has anyone ever used it? I am thinking about using it with my 85% cotton/15% silk yarn to keep it from stretching out.

Thanks. I am making the strapless dress from Vogue spring/summer and don't want a saggy dress with that develops a severe case of elephant butt the first time I sit down.

Is this readily available? Is it different than sewing elastic that comes on a spool?
