But it's too bad you underlined - cotton lawn is so perfect for the summer, feels like a breeze, and would be perfect for that pattern. Now it's a bit stiff, and less cool. Underliining is something to do when you just have to have the wrong fabric for the use you're putting it to, but when you start with the perfect fabric it's just too bad.
You know, it's funny, I was in the Marche St Pierre last weekend and I had to calm the saleswomen down before I could get my fabric cut, they were all in a terrible huff because a bunch of american tourists had come in and bought nice linen, and then insisted on buying bemberg rayon to line it. What a waste of good fabric they all cried! Why can't they just buy something hot if that's what they want, and leave the linen to people who'll appreciate it? I tried to explain about patternreview fads, and technical competitiveness, but I don't think I was very successful :-)..6/8/10 4:59 PM
