A 5 yard 32 inch long by 63 inch wide piece of polyester stretch knit fabric. Fiber and manufacturer not stated and date unknown.
I am placing this fabric in the late 1960s/early1970s due to the pattern and colors. The other fabrics from this stash are in the same general time period. No fiber content stated but feels like polyester and is a knit. The fabric is a rectangle…any distortion to that shape is either the angle of my clothesline or the fabric is just blowing in the wind. Any discolorations are the fact I take a bad photo or the sun is glinting off of a fold. The fabric also has a slight sheen to it which adds to the color distortions when photographed.
I did not see any flaws, pulls or snags. Fabric seems strong without weak areas. I did not see any flaws in the printing.
Year: late 1960s or early 1970s Fiber: 100% Polyester. This is a knit with slight stretch. Pulling a 10 " section of the cross grain HARD resulted in 11"...1" of stretch. Label: Unknown Color: Lime Green, Yellow, White, Red, Green, Blue Pattern: Floral Width: 63 inches; the white selvedges are wider than usual so the actual print is 60 inches wide. Length: 5 yards plus 32 inches Flaws: None noticed Laundered: Yes, cold water Dried: Line Dried Aired: Aired
Picture 1: Close shot of the fabric hanging from the clothesline. Changes in the motif's sizes is caused by the wind blowing. Motifs are uniform in size on the actual fabric. Picture 2: Shot of the fabric hanging from the clothesline showing the entire print. Color unevenness is caused by the sun and the slight sheen of the fabric.. Picture 3: The entire piece of fabric hanging from the clothesline. Picture 4: The reverse or wrong side of the fabric. Picture 5: Close up of fabric's print with quarter for scale. This is the closest to the fabric's true color, perhaps a tad bright.
The fabric was washed and dried in the Carolina sun. Please note that my yard has no pets and is not fertilized...just grass. So if a piece of fabric lays on the grass while hanging from the clothesline for photos...it stays clean. When purchasing a vintage fabric please remember that it is old. I may have missed a fade or a flaw. I may have misjudged the year. I am happy to be corrected. All fabrics are vintage items and sold…AS IS. Although I maintain a smoke-free and a pet-free studio, I have no control over where items have been previously. I attempt to represent my goods as honestly as possible, but sometimes something will get by. If you have any doubts about an item, E-MAIL ME! I want to make sure that you will be pleased with your purchase.
