Vintage cotton flower and fruit print fabric at AC Fabric Shop
This is my new favorite fabric in my vintage fabric shop right now!
Stunningly beautiful flower and fruit bough print in sage green, coral, teal, peach, and brown on a peachy shade of cream.
I can’t tell its exact vintage, but I think it’s quite old, I would guess from the 1930’s or earlier. It looks like many antique cottons I’ve found too, pre-dating the turn of the century
By feel, look, and burn test, it appears to be all cotton, heavier than calico and a little lighter than most twills, though it has a crosswise twill-like weave
35″ wide, 5 1/3 yards available
