I've been very busy these past few days getting our stock ready for next weekends vintage fashion fair. One of my biggest tasks has been getting through the 3 garbage bags full of vintage fabric we acquired last week.
As it had been sitting under an old Queenslander for the past 16 years (plus of course, sitting around for many years before that), it was filthy to say the least!
I've just about finished washing, drying, trimming, ironing and pricing it all. Not all could be salvaged, but we certainly got some beauties and some rare old pieces too.
There are enough printed sateens to send any fabric nerd into overdrive....
I love this 50s shell pink cotton
Cute puppies on a novelty weave...please excuse the wrinkles, some of these photos were taken pre-ironing!
Included were some super-long lengths of laces, mostly in black so I haven't shown them here, but I wonder what a person might make with so much fabric?
Wouldn't this make a great curtain or cushion covers?
Well it's 1am here as I write this and I've just finished for the day. I'm off to catch up with a few of your blogs, apologies if I haven't been over to yours much lately but I should have more time after next weekend is over :)
