This is vintage fabric from The Cele Peterson fabric collection. "For almost a century, Cele Peterson was a catalyst to creative, unselfish, community development, and a challenging voice for worthwhile change." She was a "Tucson's grand dame of fashion" and a philanthropist focused on building up the arts and caring for the children of Tucson, Arizona.
(quotes from her obituary in the Tucson Sentinel)
Project Ideas: This is a lightweight corduroy with a soft small wale that would make cute dresses, skirts, shorts, lightweight jackets, home decor accents, accessories, and more! It's excellent (and completely adorable) for children's clothing.
Content: 100% Cotton, 16 wale corduroy (16 wales per inch)
Condition: We have an entire roll of this fabric that has obvious factory flaws about every yard or so. There is a discoloration, likely from machinery oil. You'll want to order extra yardage to make sure you have enough fabric for your project.
Care Instructions: Always wash and dry fabric before sewing to ensure it is done shrinking, this will make your final project more likely to be machine washable.
We do our best to color-match each photo to the fabric, however, device displays vary greatly in quality, warmth, and vibrancy. We cannot guarantee what you see here will be an exact match to the color of the fabric when it arrives.
