Sophisticated and bling-y, this 1970s paisley and flower polyester fabric has a firm hand and some drape/moderate stretch that’s perfect for your 1970s reproduction clothing, costumes, or style. Still it has that Disco Nights vibe, or Rhoda at her most flamboyant. At less than 2 yards, this may be best for a top, open cardigan, or skirt.
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. She said she stopped sewing/buying fabric in 1979 and this piece was among her collection.
Size: 63″ w x 1 yards + 28″ (and then some uneven extra at the top that I didn’t count)
COLORS: Black background with salmon, maroon, army green, off-white, beige, and gray patterns along with plenty of silver glitter flowers throughout.
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.
