I come across so so many great fabrics, both vintage and new, it seems like a waste not to share them. So I’m starting a new feature, wherein I present to you my favorites.

Perhaps I’ve been inspired by this post on The Freelancer’s Fashion Blog, but I am loving blue florals right now. Blue roses seem to be a staple of 1950s textiles, and I love how odd and pretty and BRIGHT they look. Here are some favorites:

You have a fantastic eye for great fabrics! I haven’t ventured into online fabric buying since I’m soo “touchy-feely”. I need to touch it to get a feel for what I would make with it. Thanks for sharing your tips!
