Her mei tai is fancy.
About a year ago, a gorgeous piece of embroidered blue silk caught my eye on the clearance shelf at a local retailer. On a whim, I bought 1 yard of it. This was all I could justify spending since even on clearance, it wasn’t cheap by my standards.
I knew from the moment I laid eyes on it, it would someday be the front panel of a mei tai. Yet, it would take a very special complimentary fabric to make this work. I owned no such fabric.
So, for a year I have been scouring clearance bins and shelves for a fabric that had just the right look, just the right weight, and just the right amount of yardage. I finally found it!
Gold damask and blue embroidered silk makes for one very FANCY mei tai!
