Daily Swatch: Rayon

The Daily Swatch shows one piece of vintage fabric (almost) every day. Themes change periodically. You are welcome to add your own examples of the theme to the True Up and/or Vintage Fabric Flickr Pools. I don’t know much about rayon other than it’s a garment fabric. It’s high time I found out more! It’s [...]

Also spotted on the Michael Miller website today, this crazy adorable, Mary Blair-Esque kids’ print called “Ring Around the Rosie.” I haven’t seen it in any shops yet … I’ll let you know when I do.

Daily Swatch: Circus Week

Ugh! So torn! A great black-background print … and four yards of it, for $24! But … clowns. They are clowns at their best and least scary, with horseshoe-shaped legs, even.

Vintage circus imagery even has its own Flickr group. Above: Vintage Circus, fabric from a curtain, from cherry tomato on Flickr. Add your vintage circus prints to the True Up [...]
