When I spied this thread at Open Drawer, I knew resistance was useless.
I quote from the packaging ...
This thread appears matt grey in ordinary diffuse light but flashes a luminous silver when viewed from the same direction as a light source. It is spectacular in low light or at night.
I wasn't sure why I needed it. Or what I would use it for.
All I knew was: Must. Have. Shiny. Object.
Sometime after the purchase of aforementioned thread, I remembered: I was about to make a coat (Jalie 2680 - Women's City Coat). And as you can see, this baby has a shedload of top-stitching.
Although the pattern instructions don't specifically recommend that said top-stitching should look spectacular in low light or at night ....
... I am sure that top-stitched seams flashing a luminous silver when viewed from the same direction as a light source will be a great asset.
Once I have finished the coat I will be able to go walking at night, secure in the knowledge that I will be visible from miles away.
Look out dear ... what's that in the headlights?
Why I do believe its a princess-seamed coat with wobbly top stitching.
