          A few months ago I went shopping in Chicago and was overjoyed with finding this dress.  I have always loved tapestry fabric.  It feel very luxurious.  When I was in early High School I inherited some tapestry fabric and used it to make a vest.  I wore it all the time.  I know a lot of people see it and just think "that looks like a couch," but really it's just another type of fabric.  I find it exciting when designers use unexpected fabrics to create not-so-typical styles.  Just because couches are made of tapestry fabric doesn't mean it can't be used for other things.  Same with curtains and lace.  I just don't get it.  I got this at Forever 21.  I don't think they still have it, but I did find this similar dress.  I think the bodice portion is made of the same fabric.  Also, I have to bring up my purse.  It's also tapestry fabric and it's beautiful.  I found it while thrift shopping a few years ago.  What are your thoughts on tapestry fabric used in other ways?
