being back in Flatbush always makes me regret having never learned to actually sew. There's a place around the corner from me that's currently selling bridal satin and chinese brocade at $1.99/yd. It's usually at least three times that at JoAnn's. At those prices, I'm starting to see why Mom made damn near 3/4s of my wardrobe growing up. Not to mention two of my three sisters' wedding gowns.

I suppose it's never too late to learn. Aeris does need a new outfit or five.

Chinese brocade for 1.99 a yard?

You can always buy me some!!! I so want some. Still, some day I'll come down to there and get some myself.

I might get some just on general principle. I'm a sucker for brocade, and I could probably manage enough needle play for a throw pillow or something.

I agree. I don't sew but I know people who do. And I am about to break up with pre-made pants entirely.

Pardon me while I weep with envy over the fabric prices (let alone the access to a whole store worth of fabric).

And I bet you can find help with the learning how. It's not like you don't know anybody who knows ...
