Description

This is a very long story: I found this fabric at a dead lady’s house; my friend was friends with the great niece, they had to clean out the house, etc etc. It was on it’s way to becoming a duvet, it has those pre-printed numbered spots to make a big picture. Well, it didn’t get finished. I made a wrap skirt out of it. I started it in Los Angeles last year and just stumbled upon it and finished it off, hemming it and adding the waistband, buttonhole , and beltloop. for sale at ledthread.etsy.com
