    A beautiful panel

    As always, the printing and fabric and superb. The dress made with the circular skirt has been well received by my granddaughter. Just an observation, I think it would be more inclusive to add characters of colour to the repertoire, I would love to buy them, and will continue to do so, but we need more inclusivity.

    Beautiful print.

    I started off my project with fussy cutting this beautiful panel. I'm making new swimwear for my daughter who takes lessons year round. She was hoping I would finish them for the school swimming carnival but I was not happy with the blue solid I had in my stash - it didn't quite go. So I ordered and have since received the all over under sea print that goes nicely with this panel. The fabric is high quality. I have worked with Boo swim fabric before.The quantity I bought was more than enough to make the front of a rash top and also the front of a one piece. She'll have plenty of different combinations

    Beautiful mermaid panel

    The large mermaid panel is so beautiful. The colours are gorgeous, and the quality is fantastic. I used this for the front of the tween rashie. Super fast service too.
