What would you make with this?

Posted by   + Show Post

I have recently inherited some fabric. Most I can figure out a use for, but this has me stumped and I have a full bolt of it!

It is Cotton and the side says that it is a tapestry print.

If you go to google image and type in "tapestry renaissance dress"  you may find some ideas

I was thinking of a type of cape and hat  - something along that line

I would say a purse lining or vintage looking kitchen apron.

If it is kinda heavy, awesome reupholster material, look great on a wingback chair.  I'd put it in my house!

I like the dress, but this fabric isn't tapestry. It is a tapestry print. I don't think it would work, unless I made it for dolls.

It isn't tapestry though. It is a Tapestry print and I think it would look cheesy as a renaissance dress.

Totally not my style - I'd probably use it as prototype fabric when figuring out a new pattern. Or find a home for it with someone whose style it matches. :)

What about just a waist cincher for a peasants dress if you back it?
