I normally advise everyone to never go back. I find that moving forward on any sort of project to be a better way to go. It usually leads to a better than imagined result. But the cheap printed compromise fabric I had installed on Rana's kitchen table, while done, continued to irk me.
It wasn't until I stopped into a great designer fabric shop and saw this luscious red, loom woven, highly textural raw silk, slubby, little number that I saw the other fabric had to be banished right away.
In this case, going back was only a brief detour on the march to completion. And I'm much relieved and happy for it. I learned that Halfland requires Extreme Texture. Nothing can be included that is flat. Being fabric is not enough, it had to be a heavy hardy weave.
Wire was sewn into all skirt panel edges. The panels were hot glued into pleats on the underside of the table front and sides. The wire at the hem was bent to loosely match the pleats. If any scene calls for Rana to lift up the table skirt to look for something, or feed a carrot to a dust bunny #>()'∞'(), the wire allows the soft fabric to hold it's shape for animation.
