On the other hand, I may be something of a fabric tyro, but this 'coutil' does not appear to have any kind of herringbone weave to it at all. It's more of a tight-woven brocade and makes me wonder where the 'coutil' comes in. (http://www.farthingalesla.com/coutil.php ninth one down is the one I ordered. pink, with roses) Perhaps I have a too-narrow notion of what coutil is.
Now... what am I going to make it into..... decisions, decsions. Oh, auroraceleste what was that Regency pattern you wanted me to try? ;)
