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!
Perfect for your 1960s/1970s dress-making, this flower power piece would be perfect for VW Van café curtains, or a funky mini dress, kids clothes, pillow fronts, French Terry style wash cloths, and more!
Rich, saturate colors of purplish-blue, burnt orange, red, white, and chartreuse foliage. A poly weave with great drape with a brushed surface texture, low pile, Terry-cloth like front.
Size: 53″ w x 2 yards.
CONDITION: Very very good overall. Within the listed dimensions of the piece there are no flaws. However there is an extra (full width) 13″ length at the top of the piece that has two lightly faded 10″ streaks in it but because it’s such a busy print with such a good drape, it really just all blends together. See pic #4 for this. I decided to just keep this 13″ connected to the other 2 yards of fabric length because it’s still useable and likely wouldn’t be noticed, but also because there is a lot of of fabric around it that you can use as well
SHIPPING: Free domestic; calculated international shipping.

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.
