OK, let’s see if I can explain this so it makes any kind of sense at all.
I need some help finding images of 1920′s fabrics, especially everyday cottons. I have some 1920′s dresses on my mind and I’d like to approximate the patterns as closely as I can, but most of the reproduction fabrics available right now are either 19th century (especially Civil War) or 1930′s-1940′s. If y’all can help me find images either of fabrics or of clothing (which is made from fabric, of course) so that I can get a better feel for what kinds of prints I should try to use, I would be most appreciative. I love gingham, but it’s nice to branch out, right?
I know I sometimes see images of fabric or housedress ads. They would be ideal.
I own this and plan to use it, but the fabric itself is terrible–more poly than cotton, despite what the label said–and I doubt I’ll really like the finished dress.
