Item details

3 yards + 32" long x 35" wide of a charming vintage 40s cotton dress fabric in excellent condition. Floral motif with soft hades of aqua tonal rose buds and "chocolate milk" brown stem and leaves. The background has abstract oval motif all over in the same colors - the ground is paper white. I gently hand soaked this fabric in Restoration powder for vintage fabrics to remove shelf dust -- it dried lying flat outdoors and has a bit of a stiffness from drying in the sun. This cotton is high in thread count and has a plain straight weave. Zoom in to see the details. I have matched the colors as close to the original as possible - actual colors are softer and a bit lighter than in photos. This yardage would have been purchased for making a day dress or shirtwaist dress which was the most popular style back in the day (as photo example shows). 3 yards + 32" long x 35" wide
