Item details

This fabric is VERY RARE. The back is not printed...I believe it is some sort of roller method used before the first half of the 20 century...almost impossible to find.

It is a fine 1930's/1940's (or perhaps earlier) vintage wool gabardine fabric...3+1/2 yards by 45 inches.

Perfect for suiting, it is smooth, not scratchy, and full of drape. It reminds me of clothing you see in the 30's and 40's movies. There is a book called "The Way We Wore" by Marsha Hunt, full of 1940's women's gabardine clothing including suits...just spectacular! I personally think that this fabric could be used for the 20's, 30's(Art Deco), the 40's, Edwardian, maybe even Victorian, or retro.

If you look at the selvedge you will see that the printing gets watery, and is sort of burgundy)...before that, the stripes could be said to be a dark burgundy on close look, but also come off as brown at a natural distance. The background is tan.

The condition is excellent!

I still think that my photos may not convey how striking this fabric is. Some look a bit too gray in the close-ups, (last 2 photos), which are for detail to be seen. The color contrast is richer looking, rather than flat in color. Background is tan, and not a creamy beige...
