Item details

Now this is an interesting rare find: over 2 yards of vintage washable wool fabric from 1950 - especially when the fabric still looks and feels like new with no musty odor. Fabric was washed in past several years, then packed away. It looks like new and would love to be fashioned into a new item.

This piece of fabric was originally a full, gathered at the waist skirt with buttoned waistband and hidden pocket that my mother bought for me at a fancy "downtown" department store when I was in the 5th grade. I thought I was very fashionable, topping it with a light blue long sleeve blouse with mandarin collar. I was also impressed with the fact I could actually wash this wool skirt which was unheard of in that era.

I kept the skirt all these years and took it apart a number of years ago to refashion it into something else but never came up with the right idea.

Fabric is 30" wide and 78" (over 2 feet) long so there is quite enough to make a more modern skirt, jacket, or other clothing item with it. There is a seam (barely visible) about a foot or so in from one end of yardage along the width left from the original skirt and a little bit of frayed fringe here and there on some places on the ends. Overall great shape for being 64 years old.

This is a lightweight washable wool plaid in shades of off white, navy and burgundy.
