COLOR NOTE: THIS FABRIC IS MORE LIKE A DEEP SALMON THAN THE BURNT ORANGE THAT APPEARS IN MY PICS. PICS #9 & #10 COME CLOSEST TO THE TRUE COLOR.
An interesting 1970s polyester yet with an art deco print to it. Perfect for your early synthetic 1930s reenactor shirt/skirt/dress. Slight two way stretch but it has more of a heavy hand — not a super loose jersey. Better for structured clothing or slight drape.
Or if used for your 1960s/1970s dress-making, this piece would be perfect for a little fitted top with puffed sleeves.
I sourced this and a bit more 1960s/70s fabric along with a bunch late 60s early 70s patterns from a lady with a rich sewing history in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Boy she must’ve been a fashion plate in her day!

SHOP NOTE: I’m all about sustainability. ALL of my packaging (boxes, envelopes, tissue, ribbons, padding) except tape is 100% recycled. I only include invoices by request to avoid more paper and ink use. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
SHOP MISSION: My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst. It is our duty to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still useable in life today.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since 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. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
