"Eleanora" is a direct reproduction of a shirtwaist fabric in Amber's collection of antique textiles. The original piece was homemade, basting stitches still in tact in the seam allowances, thought to be most likely made around 1900-1910. Examination of the fibers in the fragments indicate that it is a cotton fabric. Fabrics like this were made via roller printing for mass production. This reproduction is intended to look as it would right off the bolt, keeping some misalignments/imperfections in the final run. 

Our reproduction is tightly woven and has a light drape with a smooth texture, similar in hand to the original. This fabric would be suitable for shirtwaists, dresses, petticoats, men's shirts, quilts, children's clothes, etc.

This fabric is a certified organic textile and is sold by the yard. VFG Fabrics are limited quantities, but may be restocked throughout the year.
