Hubby just came back from a business trip to India. With 6 different “sets” of fabric for me. (I think he’s definitely a ‘Keeper’!) In fabulous colors, some are silk and some are cotton. Three of the sets consist of three fabrics, a shawl, a piece that is obviously intended to be the skirt with gold thread woven in at top and bottom and end seams, and a plain piece that must be for the blouse. Three of the sets consist of the shawl and another piece that has a gorgeous shaped neckline embroidered on it in bullion work, and the far end of the fabric has two edges of bullion work that are obviously intended to be cuffs. (I suspect pants cuffs, but perhaps arms cuffs, not sure) I am in a serious dither over what to do with these incredible fabrics, as I am fat, fair, and forty, and the midriff baring style these fabrics were intended for is *not* going to be a good look on my figure!!! Also, the climate in Seattle is a bit cooler than Hyderabad, and I think that these are going to require some lining… So I’m looking to all of you for suggestions – What would you do???
