Gorgeous, Intricate, Asian design, Mystery Fabric 52" wide by 20" long heavy upholstery type
Of course, this is why I still have it & now at my very advanced years have given up going to posh, dressy events so will probably never sew it into something gorgeous. Hopefully, one of you out there will do better than I did & if you do, please tell me what you made & if possible, send a picture.
Anyway, the mystery is that I have no idea what the fabric is. As you can see in the pictures of the back, the design is woven in, not embroidered nor stamped. It is 52" wide & the piece is only 20" long, so a fat half yard.
The design is very reminiscent of the blue willow pattern, except it's in lots of colors...deep reds, golden yellows & oranges, several shades of green including a teal, pink and blends of these colors.
It is a heavy cloth but soft. It holds its shape but can also be gathered easily. Really a lovely piece! Would make a great purse, book cover, short vest,bustier, wow, you can probably think of a lot more.
