Friends, I’m destashing all that fabric that’s been in my closet for the longest time. All fabrics are from nonsmoking home. I acquired them with the intention of making clothing for me and my kids when we were active in Civil War reenacting.
Please email me (email@example.com) with a number corresponding to the piece you’re interested in, and where you are. I will weigh for shipping and send you a PayPal invoice. Alternatively, if you live in the Dallas area, I am willing to meet you within a 40 miles radius and deliver.
Individually, the pieces would cost $283.50. However, if you take the lot, the cost is $200 plus shipping.
Here’s the list:
#1 – Grey melton, wool. I wanted a great coat so badly, and was going to fashion one for those cold winter encampments. 60″ wide, 6 yds. $5/yd = $30
#2 – SOLD – Grey Linsey/Woolsey – 60″, 2 1/2 yds @ $5/yd = $12.50
This is a piece of a special order woven for Confederate impression. It could make a pair of pants for a young man who wants to look like his dad.
#3 is a lightweight cotton plaid – dark red, cream and blue. It was going to be a summer-weight dress. It’s 45″ wide, and there are just over 6 yds. I’m asking $2/yd so that’s $13 for the piece.
#4 is another plaid – a green and cream cotton, 42″ wide, and there’s about 9 yds in the piece. This was another dress – probably for my older daughter who looks so good in greens!
At $2/yd that’s $18.
#5 is a lightweight cotton plaid, with red, black, gold and white. The piece measures 6.5 yds of 45″ fabric. At $2/yd that’s $13.
#6 is a cotton plaid of green, blue, cream and dark red. It’s 45″ and measures 8 yds; at $2/yd it would be $16.
#7 is a cotton plaid of red, black and cream with a green accent. It’s 45″ wide and just over 8 yds long. $2/yd = $16
#8 is a cotton plaid of blue and cream with a dark red accent. It is 42″ wide and consists of two pieces: One is 6 1/3 yds and the other is 1 yd. At $2/yd, I’ll say $14.50.
#9 is a plaid of light blue and pale yellow. I had gotten a pattern for an 1880s day dress and make it up in a darker check. When I read the documentation of the dress the pattern had been taken from – it was a light blue and pale yellow plaid! Sure enough, I had it in my closet. But never made the other dress. It’s of cotton, 44″ wide. There are 10 yds in this piece. $2/yd = $20
#10 is a green floral cotton with large roses, 44″ wide and 11 yds long. $2/yd = $22
#11 is a small pink on white floral cotton. It says on the margin, “Concord fabrics 25th anniversary special edition country floral.” It’s 42″ wide and there are two pieces: one is 5.5 yds and the other is 1.5 yds for a total of 7 yds. $2/yd = $14
#12 is a black crepe-type fabric. It’d thought about making a mourning dress of it, because it drapes so well. The content is undetermined. It’s 60″ wide and there are 11 yds in the piece. At $3/yd so it would be $33 for the piece. Sorry – the camera shows it as grey, but it is pure black – it must be the texture that is causing the reflection.
#13 is a lovely orange floral cotton. It is 45″ wide and a little over 7.5 yds. @$2/yd, that’s $15.
#14 is a small dark red floral on lighter red. It’s scrumptious. Cotton, 42″ wide. There are 4 yds, so that would be $8.
#15 is a light cotton plaid with purplish red as the dominant color. It’s 36″ wide and there are just over 5 yds in the piece. I’ll only as $1.50/yd for this one. That’s $7.50 for the piece.
#16 is a small tan print cotton. Very subtle and lovely. It’s 44″ wide, and 7.5 yds long. At $2/yd that’s $15. Well, it looks more white – sorry – the tan just didn’t show up well.
$17 is a brown on brown small floral cotton, 42″ wide. It’s 8 yds long so at $2/yd that’s $16.
There! That’s the lot out of that closet! Again, let me know what you’re interested in (email to firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll weigh it for shipping costs and send you a PayPal invoice. Or you could pick it up in Dallas. If you buy the lot or several pieces, I could even be persuaded to meet you within a 40 miles radius of Dallas.
