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 denim 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

Condition: Like new vintage deadstock.  It has a wonderful slubby texture that is hard to find in modern denims.  There are some random streaks of other colors of thread throughout the fabric, and there may be some discoloration at the selvedges from being in storage - see last photos.

Width: 36" 

Weight: Light

Opacity: Opaque

Drape: Moderate

Circa: 1950

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. 

We tear the fabric to make sure it's cut on the straight of grain, because of this, we make sure to add about an inch extra to the cut.
