You raise some valid points in its favor, but I still regard the stuff as the polyester doubleknit of belly dance costuming.
I bought some glitterdot for $1 a yard, but it's quite gorgeous. It's a deep shade of wine, and the dots are on a velvety fabric. At first, I debated about getting it (lunch money for tomorrow, or pretty fabric for a skirt tonight? ), but I'm glad I did, because the very next day, an older lady bought the whole bolt. It was a huge bolt, too, and we're not going to get any more in.
I've got some silver glitterdot fabric, too...:redface:
