Get Smitten is delighted to add a small collection of 1950s barkcloth, linen and fibreglass cloth to the vintage fabric range. These pieces are larger in size than the usual Fat Quarters and so are ideal for larger sewing projects like dress making and interior soft furnishings or as a table runner if you are styling a vintage wedding table!

This listing is for a lovely cotton barkcloth from the 1950s with very sketch like, watercolour wild flowers on an off white background. The foliage is in various shades of grey and the flowers are in rich orange and yellow. They are really elegant and dainty in design.

The fabric is 73" long and 44" wide. In metric, this is 185cm long and 112cm wide.

The condition of this 70 year old fabric is excellent/very good. I see no signs of wear or holes. I imagine the colours were once more vibrant but the fading is even across the whole piece. There is evidence of an unpicked hem along what I would class as the top edge (one of the widths) indicating that it was probably used as a curtain.

Lovely quality fabric: my parents had this fabric as a duvet cover in the 1970’s. I’m collecting meaningful fabric to make patchwork cushions so I was thrilled to find this. Many thanks for a great service and fast delivery. Best wishes, Maria.

Really lovely kit. I am a total beginner and managed this (with help from my reluctant better half 😄). The end result is so pretty, and even though we haven’t done it perfect I just love that we made it ourselves and I will enjoy putting this up every autumn.

Excellent service from Lisa - she explained that some of the fabric was no longer in stock and sent photos of alternatives- which I was able to choose from. Fabric was sent quickly arriving the next day - I've made a cushion cover from 2 of the pieces and planning to make more. Highly recommend buying vintage fabric from Lisa.
