With unrivaled, vibrant color and a sophisticated design sensibility, this 1960s haute couture crepe fabric in a graphic mod floral print will make your retro outfit — or home project — a decided standout. Print features oversized, expressive, illustrative flowers and foliage in a riot of color and form.
Fantastic crepe weave enhances and amplifies its natural luminescence.
I can see Twiggy in a mod dress with this print in 1964 Vogue right now!
FIBER: The fabric passed the burn test with flying colors which is why I believe it to be a silk-wool blend. It could have some rayon in it, but there was no indication from the burn. By Logantex Original.
WHAT TO MAKE: It’s midweight with some flow and drape, making it ideal for a sheath dress, prim jacket, or skirt. I believe it’s durable enough for pillows or dining chair seats/backs as well, though interfacing might add structure.
COLORS: Stunning chartreuse, green olive, lipstick orange, watermelon, salmon, vibrant red, russet brown or an off-white background.
SIZE: 45″ wide x 78″ (or 2 yards + 6″.)
Make something awesome and share with me to post a picture in my client gallery.
CONDITION: Superior — whomever had it before hemmed either end. Width-wise the selvages are in tact so I assume they did this to make a tablecloth.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
