when you should just buy it?
Ikat, I mean.
Even though it is ikat print, not real ikat.
Which is how you know ikat is superior
i.e. when fabric manufacturers
make print facsimiles of the real thing
so it can be available to the common folk like me.
Never mind that I went to the fabric store today
solely for a card of gold satin bias trim,
with the resolution to "not buy anything else. Period."
I will sew some ikat things for you soon and put them in the shop.
After all, good things are meant to be shared.
P.S. Naturally, I came home without the card of gold satin bias trim.
