They don't make fabric like this anymore.....at least not that I have seen in the last 30 years of buying fabric! This is original red DOTTED SWISS fabric that I am guessing was made in the ‘60’s. The piece measures just over 4 2/3 yards and is only 36” wide. It has original fabric finish, and is rather stiff, as can be seen in the photo of the folded fabric standing on its own. The dots are larger on one side (see photos) as the flocking is woven in, and slightly raised on that side. I think it is probably a cotton blend, not nylon.

In measuring it, I discovered a hole at a fold, that looks to have been caught in a machine or something when it was made….does not look chewed or cut, as the ends of the hole are frayed. The hole is through both thicknesses (folded fabric) and near the center of the yardage, about 39” from one end. In other words, you get 3 2/3 yards that is clear, then the holes, then another yard and a few inches. Depending on what you will use this for, you can probably work around it. On that same fold, near the selvage edge, are 2 more tiny holes, as seen with a Whymsies pin next to one. So all together, it has 4 holes....2 about an inch across and 2 less than 1/2 inch each--all on the same fold.

This piece of fabric has been stored in a smoke-free home stash since I received it from a friend several years ago, and probably the whole time she had it as well.
It reminds me so much of the dresses I had as a child. It would make a beautiful dress with a white pique collar, as that is what my mom made for me….ahhh! Those were the days!

I have no little girls in my life anymore, or I would keep it for a dress for them. But need to make room and my loss is your gain!
THANKS for finding my little shop! Please visit again soon! I love my Etsy customers!
