I feel he was talking about the 'standard' - "I'm making my first garb
fabric".  Not nice stuff.

You can OFTEN find $1.00 - $1.50 yard solid color or striped cotton fabric
in the bargin bin at WalMart.  And its even most of the time 100% cotton
(of course it is also often 70/30 cotton/poly, but at least its not the
other way around *smile*)
