Most clothes women wear in our region are made out of these fabrics. They create elaborate outfits with layers of fabric. Sometimes they use one pattern, other times there is a “theme” to the fabric, and sometimes they just mix & match.
At the hospital patients will bring sheets of fabric to use for bedding, towels and even cleanup rags.
I picked out several colors and patterns that I liked and bought some to bring back to the US. I plan to make some simple skirts for myself, my friends, and my sisters.
