Why oh why are our favorite fabrics so expensive? Evil trickery I tell you. First there was Schumacher's Chaing Mai.
Then the David Hicks La Fiorentina
Martin Lawrence Bullard's Adras Ikat Print in Jewel (also Schumacher)
Lulu DK Butterfly for you guessed it Schumacher
Any and all of these Quadrille China Seas= my mortgage.
Yes, they are trendy but that is also why they are so hard to get over, you keep seeing them used in new and interesting ways that make them even more fabulous.
The lesson here is to become the heir to the Schumacher.
We are pretty good about sourcing reasonably priced fabrics but every once in a while you fall hard and there just is no substitute.
