This is one of our Reproduced Fabrics of Original Vintage Prints By The Vintage pattern Shop. We aim for our reproduced vintage fabric collection to enhance and compliment any vintage sewing project.
Fabric prints and designs are often typical of an era, and we will produce and supply an array of typically iconic vintage fabric prints to cover the period from the 1930s-to-the-1980s.
Fabric Print Name: (F2-50s) Butterfly
Fabric type & composition: Crepe-De-Chine Polyester
Fabric Width: 145cm
Crepe de Chine Polyester Fabric is luxuriously smooth with a light weight and gorgeous drape. It has a lovely soft, smooth handle and is a great fabric for dress making
This material is crafted using a plain weave, whereby the warp and weft yarns are woven into a basic crisscross formation. One of my first and regular customers to have received this fabric said, “It is Sublime”.
We will be introducing an even lighter weight version of this fabric in the next collection, which will be a very flow-like see-through fabric.
We recommend either dry cleaning or a 30 degree wash. It is as easy to care for as a cotton fabric. You can wash a poly crepe on a warm or cold cycle. And tumble dry low. Press your your crepe fabric using low heat and a little steam.
Pricing and cut of fabric:
All fabrics are priced per meter length and there is a choice on the drop down menu to include 0.5 meters within your order.
The fabric is cut directly from the bolt roll, therefore you will receive a whole continuous piece. All fabrics will be supplied in continuous lengths for each printed design.
We have taken images which represent the colour as closely as possible, however the appearance of colours will always vary slightly from one computer screen to another and to the actual fabric. Please note that we have tried to make these images as close as possible to the actual fabrics, however there will be a slight variation from the picture to the actual fabric. We recommend the ordering of swatches prior to placing your order.
