Red fabric remnant Vintage dress material Tubular knit Courtelle half-metre long


Vintage 1980s dress making fabric, half metre remnant. Tubular knit - the tubular width is 36" tubular, 72" opened out (90 cm tubular, 180 cm opened out). The fabric composition is not marked, but it appears to be a good quality acrylic, probably Courtelle. This sort of material was very popular in the second half of the 20th century, for making garments requiring a slight stretch without sagging.


Suitable for:
  • Cardigans
  • Jerseys
  • Dresses
  • Baby clothes (leggings, jackets etc)
  • Skirts
  • Tops
  • Slacks and trousers
  • Costumes for stage, theatre, school plays etc
  • Sailor suits

Machine washable - I have washed a sample of it, at 40 degrees Celsius, and there was no shrinkage.


This is good quality, fairly heavy, fabric.



Condition

Unused vintage fabric in very good condition.
The fabric has been in storage since the 1980s, and the edges of the roll are a little dusty.
It should be washed before use.
