I wanted to share with you a recent purchase. I'm not sure what this fabric should turn into. What do you think? I was thinking it should be partnered with a pattern from around 1949/1950. The dilemma is what type of outfit to make as this is a very bold print to say the least.
What also drew me to this fabric, is that I could date it! It came with an original receipt:) This fabric was stored very well and the colors are vibrant. This fabric was purchased from Olga in Mexico in August of 1949. The lady (or gentleman) that purchased this fabric paid $8.50 for it. This would equal around $81. It has a linen type of weave to it. It's very primitive in the pattern. I'm quite sure Matisse and Picasso would approve. I very much wonder what this fabric was originally intended to make. Maybe even some curtains? This fabric has character. I'm sure there are some underlying themes to this fabric. It's a total doodle type of theme You have this man hunting with a spear and then this other kind of freaky face that looks like it was zapped with something atomic. Think this fabric was even too bazaar for curtains?
So, what do you see as a good use for this fabric?
