This is from the Spinster Aunts' collection. Having grown up during the depression, there were two sisters who never married. They had fine figures and an eye for fashion. They also found every bargain in Washington County. After both sisters had passed away during the 1980s, a huge collection of items were discovered. The depression had turned them into hoarders. Damaged items were removed, but many unique treasures remain. This fabric is from their collection.
Vintage fabric in a red plaid is a high textured piece. Other colors include a slate blue, yellow, and cream. The threads are over spun so it raises up a bit causing a texture. It measures 36" (0.91 m) across and 65.5 (1.66 m) long. It weighs 0.369 lbs. (167 g). There is no mill marking in the selvage. This is a typical work shirt fabric from the 1940s. For those of you old enough to remember Howdy Doody. Think of his shirt. There are no flaws or stains. Material is in excellent condition.
