Product Description

Review

Anyone liking pretty things will LOVE this book, full of colourful vintage fabrics used in a variety of different ways around the home and garden. Picked up at antique fairs, charity shops or plucked from family linen cupboards, these reams of prettiness can be used practically as gifts or just as pure ornament - draped over sofas and chairs, hung at windows, made up into cushions or bags, adding a vintage touch to your home. Whether you like floral chintzes, plain linens, intricate lace or 70s geometrics, the addition of these fabrics will add individuality to a home, stamping it with a personal touch gleaned from someone else's heirlooms. Lucinda Ganderton and Rose Hammick, accompanied by the fabulous photographs of Catherine Gratwicke, demonstrate the versatility these fabrics can offer. Simple projects are clearly explained and the photographs provide an endless source of inspiration. If you weren't overly interested in fabrics before, you will be by the time you've read this. - Lucy Watson

Format: Paperback
This book is crammed with pictures of stylish settings where vintage fabric has been used to create fabulous accessories such as curtains, cushion and throws. The photographs are lovely and inspiring. There are a number of well illustrated projects to make in the book such as a curtain out of vintage children's handkerchiefs and a patchwork cushion. I like to flick through it now and again and just absorb the atmosphere especially when i am looking for inspiration for a new project.

Not enough original projects, but very good 10 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I liked this book very much - the pictures are well-done and the layout is beautiful. Very high design standards. I only wish there were more creative or new projects - things I have not already seen elsewhere. I have TONS of vintage fabrics, and there are just so many pillows and sack bags I can make (or need for that matter). There's room for another book with more projects, but this is a wonderful, attractive start

love of vintage 9 Jan. 2007
By Cotton Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is somewhat interesting if you like looking at pictures, but don't expect too much inspiration if you are a seasoned sewer. And, if you take any decorating magazines you will have seen much better pictures than what is in this book. Definitely not a book you will want to keep for reference, because it is not detailed enough. A lot of outdoor ideas if you like to use fabrics in that way. Also ideas like: covers for hot water bottles, coffee pots, books, and clothes hangers. Make bags to hold laundry and toys. The rest of the book shows kitchens and bedrooms using towels and spreads with vintage, or vintage "look" fabrics.

Rethink Your Use of Fabrics 19 Dec. 2005
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I needed the ideas in this book to use the vintage lace that I'd collected and the stacks of old quilts hidden away in the closet. These were things that attracted me at flea markets and yard sales, but then I had trouble working them into my decor.

The idea of hanging antique clothing on the wall like a piece of art really appeals.

This is a great book for any fabric-aholic out there.

There are ideas for every room of the house 8 Dec. 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lucinda Ganderton and Rose Hammick's Vintage Fabric Style uses gorgeous color photos by Catherine Gratwicke to embellish the authors' discussions of incorporating vintage fabrics into a modern home. There are ideas for every room of the house, plenty of step-by-step projects, and plenty of insights on fabric qualities and project suitability. Bright photos everywhere make for fabulous examples.
