Update Your Winter Wardrobe – Vintage Brocade Fabric

Every Monday I will be linking my vintage fabric stash to a fashion trend on the High Street.

This winter, according to Saturday’s Telegraph, the alternative to sequins and glitter is – wait for it “brocade”.   I’ve always loved this fabric and it has in the past been used to make stunning evening bags, but how about a pair of shorts, a jacket or a pair of trousers?!  Don’t over do it. The head to toe outfit should be firmly left in the 1970’s glam rock era but a classically tailored piece could revitalize your winter wardrobe

These pieces of vintage brocade fabrics have been lurking in a box in my stash for months – who out there is going to give them a new lease of life?

Just in and ready for the Festival of Vintage on the 28th and 29th of April. These lovely 1940s fabrics are just the thing for that authentic outfit. 2 gorgeous apron cottons and some fabulous flower and bird print crepe.
