I don’t normally post about fabric. But today I am particularly jazzed – so i had to share. Last week whilst on a trip to my favourite underpriced thrift store, I found that someone had donated their entire fabric stash – of UNUSED vintage fabrics STILL WITH THEIR PURCHASE TAGS ON! what?!?!!? freak out! Even better – i got the whole box for $20.
I wanted to cry with excitement. It’s so hard to find vintage fabric – I normally have good luck with vintage sheets (which i love working with), but unused fabric? wowza.
Almost all the pieces are over 2 yards in length, which leaves me with heaps of options for using them – and there were some amazing pieces. My favourite is a piece of 100% wool suiting, with tiny herringbone pattern. But I just can’t get over all the gorgeous plaids and unusual prints.
The photo above is of my favourite pieces – but that’s only half of what i got! I am dying over here people. I cannot wait to start using it all!
