New life in vintage French fabric

27 Oct

Monet style French vintage fabric soon to be girlie frocks

Some more wonderful 1950s vintage curtains arrived this morning c/o eBay. The fabric is a 1950s  atomic era, Eames-ey green heavy cotton shot with flashes of yellow and red. It’s like looking through your eyelashes at a field splashed with poppies in high summer. These French vintage fabrics are so good, the designs are brilliant and the quality of the cloth calls to my finger-ends. I save all the selvedge legends with the colour chart, fabric names, great typography, the sliver of off-cut print.
They began as red fringed curtains. They’ll be reborn as girlie frocks. Look out for the dresses in my etsy shop soon.
