This was such a fun find to source! The illustrative quality of this big, bold, bright floral print with its line drawing energy and appeal sets it squarely in the mid century (as early as the late 1950s to around 74′, but we think it’s a 70s piece based on the color pallette).
WHAT TO MAKE?: The lightweight, semi-stiff, semi-drapey gauze fabric makes it suitable for a sheer blouse or sun dress with a camisole or slip underneath. Alternatively it could make a playful bathing suit cover-up garment or sheer demi-robe. It could also work for little café curtains in a glamping pad, VW re-do, or small house windows.
COLORS: Chartreuse, grass green, burnt orange, white, black, illuminating yellow, lemon, and celadon. The intensity and harmony of these colors really set it apart, making it a unique find for clothing or small sheer curtains.
Size: 45″ w x 2.3 yards long (or 85″).
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.
