shot cotton lagniappe

Recently Jude posted a wonderful dissertation on shot fabrics.  Highly recommended!  It induced me to admit my love of a certain brand of shot cotton, something of a guilty pleasure since it’s a popular designer and the fabric is expensive.  A little bonus I love from all fabrics, but most especially this shot cotton, is the ravishing ribbon the selvage makes.

      Well if you ever find a good source besides Fassett, let me know. I’d rather find recoverable fabric, like old clothes and such, but I’ve just never seen any except the usual chambray.
