Diane von Furstenberg and Gloria Vanderbilt - Only A Bit Naughty

After adding one of my favorite Gloria Vanderbilt vintage fabrics to the website, I wanted to walk a bit in her shoes, to discover some tidbits of what makes Vanderbilt tick.

Found on Youtube is a fabulous conversation between Diane von Furstenberg and Gloria Vanderbilt. The topic may seem a bit naughty, but isn't. I so appreciated the pure "woman-ness" that exudes from both women.

Gloria Vanderbilt Vintage Fabric

Oh how I love this vintage Gloria Vanderbilt fabric! It's been in my personal clutches for quite some time and I'm now offering it up to you on the website. Raise your yard stick if you are a vintage fabric pack rat --- yes, up high. That's me too and some vintage fabrics stick around with me longer than others before I put them on the website.

Gloria, I've enjoyed having you around. It's time for someone else to delight in the roses, hearts, dots, polished finish, summer colors, and seersucker texture of this fabric.

Just In! Many Vintage Novelty & Floral Fabrics

Keep an eye out on RevivalFabrics website, I recently found many really unique vintage cotton fabrics. Most are vintage cotton fabrics from the 1940s - 1950s, there are a few 1960s fabrics.

I'll add these fabrics to the website over the next month. Check out the vintage fabrics that I added today. I especially like the vintage fabric with yellow butterflies and purple background --- it's a stunning color combination.

More added soon!

Yardage - Vintage Cowboy Fabric - Get a Yard Free

I'm so excited to have a vintage cowboy fabric in uncut yardage, I'm extending the Deal of the Day!

I have 11 uncut yards of this 1940s - 1950s vintage cotton cowboy fabric. If you buy 10 yards, you'll receive the 11th yard free.

Very rarely will you find vintage cowboy or novelty fabric in this kind of yardage. It's also sold by the yard, if you don't need the full yardage.

Valentine's Day Vintage Fabric - Cool Sepia Colors

Here's a fun vintage 1973 cotton fabric just in time for Valentine's Day!

In this vintage fabric you'll find bears holding hearts that say "This Bears My Love for You." Cute, yes?

Not only is this an awesome design, the date of 1973 is on the selvage. This is a Klopman Mills Burlington retro fabric.

My grandmother used to hand tint family photos. If you compare a hand tinted photo (photo from Wikimedia) to the bears in this fabric, you'll notice a resemblance in the wonderfully rich sepia tones and colors.

Happy early Valentine's Day to you.
