As I mentioned, I have been sorting through my fabric and organizing my sewing supplies. Today I came across a piece of vintage fabric that I had forgotten I had. Many years ago, when I owned a fabric store, a customer who had become quite a friend, came into the store and said she had a little gift for me—a small piece of fabric she had purchased at a yard sale.
At first glance it looked like a nice paisley-ish print. Look closer. Each of those nearly oval shapes has an image of a young woman—wading in water, jumping rope, dressed in old-fashioned clothing. And—
showing off her underwear. Pretty fancy hose and garters on the first one and then that second poor soul, caught with her arms full of groceries and her panties around her ankles!
What do you suppose this fabric was used for? I have to believe that it was designed by a man, with a vivid imagination.
Don't you just hate it when you're hurrying toward your car, with your arms full of groceries and your underwear falls down? I know I do.
