New Historically Accurate, Authentic, Reproduction Fabric!

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’s Dating 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!

Here is a quick glimpse of what I have to offer right now.
As of right now, I have approximately 15 yards of each print listed in my Etsy shop.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.

  1. 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!

  2. Dear Susan,

    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!

    Happy selling,
    Sabine

  3. 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
