I do NOT know where I got the fabric!! I have this suit, and a similar ikat-look polyester/silk blend that was enough for a jacket, but don't know where it came from. I'm guessing from our last trip to SE Asia? Anyway it turned into a gorgeous suit, and I always get compliments on it. It's in colors I like, and works well with my large collection of turquoise jewelry (a benefit of growing up in New Mexico). The great thing about Mohammed, (and Marc's Mohammed, too) is they looked at the fabric & figured out ways to highlight the fabric's pattern on the outfit. So the color & the hem of the skirt show the end of the woven pattern--a nice detail that most non-sewers never notice. Apologies that it's a rather bad photo--we'd just got back from a Youssou n'Dour concert & it was late & we were tired, so didn't take a good look at the preview on our digital camera.
