Ok, this post is also related to her in a way, but I think it's not just about her. So decided to post it here.
It all started few months back when I stumbled upon this petti-skirts picture in flickr.
I was totally fascinated by these skirts, so decided to get one for Pari. But I could not find any shop which was making them in India (and these skirts are insanely expensive to order from US), so I decided to stitch one myself. I found some videos explaining the process in youtube. It all looked pretty manageable. Thus my hunt for Nylon chiffon started.
I checked couple of places nearby but getting right fabric was not easy (especially when you are staying on Outer ring road). May be I need to hunt in the central Bangalore area, for which I hardly have time. So I decided to check online, if I can find some place which sells the fabric online.
Well, all I got was some links pointing to exporters in India.
I sent a query to one of the exporter in Bangalore to check if at all he has the required fabric (so that I can may be go to his shop and buy it). But I think this site doesn't work the way I thought it would.
I am getting mails from exporter from all over Asia now. A typical mail reads like this,

They would be so disappointed to know that all I need is about five yards of Nylon chiffon.
