Hi everyone! Life has encroached on my blogging the past several days. I hate when that happens, but fortunately, I have quite a lot of back up photos that I can assemble into posts on short notice, without too much trouble. Today is one of those posts. Last summer I hit an estate sale where boxes and boxes of vintage fabric lined the driveway. Long ago I stopped buying fabric because (a) I no longer sew and (b) I find it difficult to sell. However, once I overheard the prices the sellers were quoting, I decided I would pick up a few remnants. I limited myself to five. Didn’t I show an enormous amount of restraint?!!
This beautifully graphic MOD remnant was the first piece of fabric that I selected from among the hundreds available. I envision it as a perfectly draped maxi dress or as a piece of stunning wall art.
Here’s a better view of this 1960’s-70’s era polyester (cost: $1.00, value: $25-35.00 for 2.66 yards). Available
I only found two small pieces of this cotton twill with it’s marvelous, MOD design (cost: $1.00, value: $8-10.00 for 1/4 yard and 1/2 yard pieces). Available
Another ultra MOD design with contrasting blue and orange coloration and some citrus-y lemon and lime accents. A beautifully sheer nylon fabric, it would make a dandy scarf (cost: $1.00, value: $25-30.00 for 3 yards). Available
This checked aqua and turquoise knit fabric (possibly wool) is so refreshing; it would look lovely as an A-line skirt or perhaps a pair pillows for the sun room (cost: $1.00, value: $10-15.00). Available
This wonderful, Boho, paisley fabric is telling us that spring is around the corner, can you hear it? A light weight cotton fabric, it would make a beautiful, flowy skirt or curtains for a girl’s bedroom (cost: $1.00, value: $25-35.00 for 3 yards). Available
Thanks so much for stopping by!
