I got this cool piece of fabric at an estate sale. In person, it’s is cobalt blue on bright white.
see the transition from bird to fish?
even the birds change subtly along the pattern, losing their spots…
When I see it, I think “Indonesian wax print”; the selvage says “copyright Escher heirs 1980”.
Parenthetically, one of the pieces of fabric I got from Nairobi (via Craigslist) features the same birds and identifies as “Queen of Africa Super Imitation Wax”:
So anyway, I DO have a question.
The fabric is 47" wide by not quite long enough, with the pattern going across the grain (fish on one selvage, birds on the other).
I’d like to make a long sleeved tunic, but there’s not enough fabric for that. I have some matching solid blue, and this piece, from the same sale.
I don’t think that would quite work.
Any suggestions? pattern recommendations?
