Attention Historic Seamstresses! I am really excited to announce I have begun working with an American fabric distributor who carries an extensive line of high quality reproduction cotton prints!I am going to do my best to be competitive on pricing.Many of the designs are straight out of Eileen Trestain’sDating Fabrics: A Color Guide 1800-1960. If you have a particular color or style you have been looking for, please let me know and I will see if I can locate it for you!

YES! I’ve tried to do some repro fabrics through spoonflower, but they are just SO expensive, even for me, the “designer,” so I’m stoked to see these prints for a far more reasonable price, and I will happily lend you my business. Bring on the 18th c!
how exciting!!! The fabrics are beautiful and the price very reasonable! I’m looking forward to upcoming fabric choices. Hopefully you’ll manage to get the book by Barbara Johnson “A lady of fashion” for further inspiration!
Hi Ladies! Thanks for the support! This vendor is also in state so I do not have to pay shipping fees (which ends up adding $ to the consumer’s final price!) Lauren- I first heard of Spoonflower on your blog. What a great resource! Sabine- I am still waiting to get a copy of A Lady of Fashion. Maybe they will reprint it sometime in the near future! Thanks again Ladies! I do really appreciate it! -Susan
