Vintage 50s Sewing Grey Silk Lining Diamond Motif 2.5 yds


Brand Etsy

This is wonderful - vintage silk sewing fabric woven with a woven double diamond motif throughout. This silk sewing fabric is unused in a bolt that measures 47 in width, including the selvedge and over 3 yards in length. The first 16 however has tape residue marking as the fabric was secured on the board with two strips of masking tape, so I am selling this as 2.5 yards of fabric, although there probably is about 2 yds and 26 and you can salvage some of the fabric that is marked. This fabric was acquired from the liquidation of an old fur business, so obviously had been used to line fur coats - in those days, fur coats were treasured and very expensive, so they would use only the best quality fabric to line them. I did a burn test to ascertain what it is - the residue was a soft black ash, so Im fairly certain that it is silk. You could almost use this on either side, although the satin finish side is the correct one. This silk sewing fabric is in unused condition.
This is beautiful quality silk sewing fabric - great if you need to re-line a fur coat, or perhaps could be used to make other items from scarves to pillows or anything that you can think of that doesnt require more than about 2.5 yards.
