I've been known to use just about anything for a tablecloth: a vintage shawl; a new satin leopard sheet; a remnant of vinyl snakeskin. If you come across a great bolt of fabric you don't even need to hem it--just tuck the edges under. A swath of this yummy design would look fabulous on an outdoor table with all white dishes. And, hello? It's yellow. It's zebra. Do you think Trina Turk designed this just for Style Maniac?
