Description

This fabric has a beautiful drape to it. It would be perfect for a skirt or shirt or sleeveless top.
Mid blue colour with bright orange roses. Green Roses and dark blue leaves. There is no fabric composition but I estimate it is nylon or a polyester and nylon mix as the fabric has a slight sheen to it and a silky feel. The first photo is the best representation of colour.

The roses vary in size. the largest is a cluster of 3 measuring 5cm (2 inches) in width. The smallest is 2cm or half an inch. There are also some mini roses dotted about.

Only one piece. Measures:
1 metre / 1 yard long
145cm / 57 inches wide (selvedge to selvedge)

Please note that it is exactly 100cm long, this includes half a centimetre of fraying.

Also, there are 3 small holes in the fabric and one slight tear. The price of the fabric reflects this.
First of the holes is near the non-selvedge edge.
Second hole is 50cm (19 inches) from the selvedge
Third hole is 20cm from the other hole or 70cm from the same selvedge
3 small holes measure less than 1cm (1/2 an inch).
The tear is narrow but 1.5cm (half an inch) long and close to the first hole (about 10cm away).

I’m explaining this in detail so if you are using a pattern you can hopefully avoid the holes. Even the though the fabric is old, it isn’t weak. I think the holes have been caused by scissors cutting off a tag when the fabric is folded as the wholes are a similar size.
