Stunningly beautiful flower and fruit bough vintage / antique cotton print

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

My new favorite fabric in my collection right now!

2 yards 11″ long

Fantastic 1960’s dancer and drummer border print fabric in green, brown, yellow, orange, and black on white
The selvage reads: ‘Vogar Fabrics Div. of Carolina Cottons Inc. c. 1963

There are a few areas on the fabric with light discolorations from age, that washing did not removed, but are so pale they didn’t show up in pics. I don’t think it really detracts from this wonderful bold print

My favorite vintage men’s shirt right now!

Is this shirt fantastic, or what?

Super awesome 1960’s elephant print cotton shirt, in green, navy blue, and red on white, with button up front, one chest pocket, smallish notched collar, and straight hem

In excellent condition
There are no labels; it appears to have been hand made by a skilled sewer

NOTE: the elephants are upside-down! so this shirt is perfect for someone who’s kinda weird. 

It looks and feels like it’s made from an all cotton fabric; I recommend machine washing and either hang to dry or machine dry with no heat, to keep the print bright and fresh

Dimensions:chest: 42″ (meant to fit a little softly)length (top of shoulder to hem): 24″
