I picked up some lovely fabrics and silk scarves and antique lace this week. Some of the vintage fabric pieces are really quite old and the silk is paper thin and delicate with beautiful muted colours, both with embroidered flower patterns and block printing too. The scarves/hankies pictured above have gorgeous 1930s Deco print designs. Underneath the top Deco handkerchief you can just see a Victorian funereal, mourning scarf which is also in a lovely silk. It is what the chief mourner would have waved during the procession.
I'm jusy trying to figue out what to make with them, or whether to sell the pieces as they are.
