I don't know how to get across how special some of these early unused yards of fabric are, I fall short of the correctly illuminating adjectives. It is so very difficult to sell a tactile and visual item online but once they are in your hands, I hear nothing but unbelievable raving! Do you hear it? This is another one of my guidelines that has fallen by the wayside! Early fabrics can be wider selvage to selvage, this has been examined by a textile friend (hugely knowledgeable), as well as the seller (well respected) and tagged from Karen Augusta's auction. Intact selvages of 31" and a length of 1 yard, highest quality. This is stunning light in color, (not as white as in the picture) fabric for a special doll with a desire to be naturally beautiful including unmentionables!. Perfect for the Enfantine doll off to an afternoon tea! The simplicity and subtle look would carry a walking suit! Most of the dresses are carried by the fabric and not a lot of unnecessary additions. A pinafore, an apron, a fun fabric for a perky miss. A wonderful accompaniment for a beribboned chapeau or a beloved flowered hat. Hurets, Chinas, Woodens, this is the fabric for you, crisp but light and airy! Also, sought after by knowledgeable embroiders.
Cambric, or batiste, one of the finest and most dense kinds of cloth, is a lightweight plain-weave cloth, originally from the French commune of Cambrai, woven in greige, then bleached, piece-dyed and often glazed or calendered. Initially it was made of linen; later, the term came to be applied to cotton fabrics as well.
