I really wanted to make it with some sort of large scale crepe print, but I had none. And neither did JoAnn's. It kills me how I can go to that particular store and not find that kind of fabric. Sure, they have lots of those silky prints, but they're just too thin--no body at all. So I chose this fabric from the Ethnic prints section. Its a tie-dye overprinted with gold Egyptian ladies. I've had a thing for gold and turquoise together ever since I had that vintage gold & turquoise brocade sofa back in college.
If the right fabric comes along, this pattern and I will meet again.
