Rare vintage 1950s curtain panel fabric.

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.

This listing is for a fabulous and rare fibreglass fabric from the 1950s with very stylised, sketch like big flowers in white and orange on a yellow and ochre background. The foliage is a bronze brown with black outlines. They are really bold and striking in design.

The fabric is 210cm long and 120cm wide. The listing is for 1 panel and there are 2 panels available

The condition of this 70 year old fabric is average. The colours are still strong and crisp other than across the top where the fabric also shows some signs of wear due to the curtain header tape. The header tape is still in place should you wish to use them as a curtain (PLEASE NOTE: you will need to buy both panels in order to have a pair of curtains). There is a 2cm hand-stitched hem across the bottom edge.

Defects: the fabric looks thinner and more faded where the curtain header tape is on both panels. There are some snags and small tears along the bottom hem edge where the fabric was against a floor on the panel 1 and a small tear up near the top edge as well as about halfway down on panel 2. Pricing reflects the age, condition and size of the fabric taking these defects into account. Please see photos.

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.

I don't like leaving reviews; and what's more, I've really no time for sea views either. Hence, I suppose, my delay in commenting. As such, the purchase-process-delivery, was double-quick smart - packaged with care and consideration... ... And as pour le fabrique: the cat's whiskers! Therein, I did privately message Lisa my thanks, and was met by a tremendous esprit de generosite. Bravo!!

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.

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.
