Estate sale find: 3 yards of this gorgeous lightweight hounds tooth woven tweed fabric perfect for dress, skirt, jacket-making, coating, pillows, table cloth, bed coverlet, or crafting. It looks like a Dior or Adolfo style woolen woven from the 80s, but I think it's more modern and recent. It would make a great winter coat fabric, dress fabric, or curtains or for upholstery (it would ned to be backed if used for upholstery). It's a chunky houndstooth weave that has a graceful drape, and a chic and sophisticated color way in a high end woven construction. I sold 4 yards previously and this is the last of the roll--it was leftover fabric from a fashion designer who left NYC, and I purchased it from her estate sale. I prefer to sell it as a lot, not by the yard.

3 yards X 56" width
condition: like new, never used. Came from and has been stored in a smoke and pet free environment. Guaranteed mint condition and clean. No holes, marks, rips.

The label with the fibre content does not come with. I had a large amount of this yardage and along the way a customer was shipped the label with their purchase. That said, it is only there as a guide to understand the fibre content.

fabric content: while it feels like non-scratchy wool (more like a wool and cotton blend) it may not be: I have photographed the label the fabric had on it with weights, density, etc (see pic). It doesn't list the fabric content as more than "A" so I'm assuming it's acrylic or acetate or some other modern fabric name with an A. It's feels like linen and wool, though, and doesn't have an acrylic-y feel at all. The colors listed are plum and black, but I see purple and burgundy and bright pink all mixed together.

It's really lovely, and just waiting for a dress maker, fashion designer, or interior designer to make clothing or pillows from. Is this you?

the weight of the 6 yard piece is a little over 5 pounds, so shipping is probably more than I want it to be, but I can mail via Parcel Post in the US. Send me your zip code and I can gauge a true shipping charge (and refund the difference for you). I list a general shipping charge from NYC to LA to cover myself, but if you are on the East Coast or the middle states the shipping would definitely be less. Convo me with any questions, and thanks for checking out my shop.

Shipping basics: I can ship worldwide to most locales (not all) so ask. Also I can discount and combine shipping for multiple items. Just ask. More info on shipping below.

About me: I am a NY based photo prop stylist for magazines like Real Simple, Instyle, Seventeen, and a few others, plus I’m a well versed shopping powerhouse for props for my photo shoots (some, you will find, oftentimes end up here on Etsy). I really enjoy finding cool stuff, and the result is what I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, fashion and home accessories, and mid century odds and ends---with fair and affordable pricing. I like good stuff.

On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and if you love something but can’t afford it and wish I would discount it for you I probably will. That said, I majorly frown on low-ball offers for items that are clearly well-priced, so do us both a favor and don’t go there. My pricing is fair and Im told super cheap in comparison to like items in other shops or on Ebay. I am interested in making money, yes, but I tell you I get more of a charge out of finding appreciative homes and closets for my amazing things. The real deal is that I have a really skilled eye for lovely items, and I have more than I can handle and need to clear out my storage bins.

On quality: When I shop I do so carefully, and only select items of a certain quality and design dignity. I really like crafting a nicely balanced shop with things for most body shapes and sizes, and I take great care in how each item compliments other items in my shop. I only list things I feel are of a high quality, but if I find an amazing dress thatis damaged or needs some love, I have it listed because I know there is someone out there who wants it---even with blemishes or repair needs. I've found Etsy to be the perfect place for me to sell that sort of thing. So the message is: there’s no junk here, just well a well culled group of neat vintage stuff from home goods to fashion.

I dutifully detail all measurements, blemishes, and details I feel are necessary in the listing, and welcome additional info about a designer or item from shoppers. In my travels I come across amazing vintage clothing in the spirit of Betty Draper and Joan Holloway from Mad Men--great silhouettes and styles that are hand made, dressmaker patterned, or tailor made by home makers in the 50s and 60s. When I come across major designer labels like Chanel or Dior I scoop them up, and again with damaged clothing of a certain quality I know there is someone out there with a mending kit and some moxie that wants them. That said, most of what I like to sell is in clean and ready to go condition.

Shipping: I can ship worldwide (though not everywhere) so convo me for inquiries about countries not listed. As a rule I try to ship Priority Mail when possible to insure that shipments arrive safely and have some sort of trafficking number. I can ship any way you like, though. For international shipments I can send via USPS International First Class depending on the weight of the package, and that is usually a less expensive route. When I am in town I generally ship same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. If I am out of town for extended periods of time I put my shop on hold, so if it’s up online I’m probably in town.
