Is Alabama Chanin jersey worth the premium cost? Yes.
Before any other consideration, this is truly wonderful fabric. The colors are rich and saturated, the medium-weight jersey has a great drape, and--o frabjous day!--the grain isn't twisted. If you've ever tried to lay out cheap jersey, you've probably cried over twisted grain.
I think of it like buying yarn. You're going to have your hands on it for hours and hours making a piece to wear and enjoy for years. Is $22 a yard reasonable? I think so.
Although you have to buy three yards to make a six-gore dress, you'll have plenty of fabric left over for a shirt, skirt, bag, pillow, etc. Lots of value!
The cuts are generous--if you order three yards, you'll actually get close to three and 1/3 yards, just because it's a giving company. That warms my heart.
