Whoa! Check out this fabric!!

As I regularly troll for period prints, I liked this one from Moda, but wasn't sure when it was good for, or if it was even authentic for anything.

But then I saw this pop up on Pinterest and totally freaked out (in a good way)! Looks like the Moda print was copied from this one in Winterthur, dated c. 1815-1820! Cool!

Looks like a textile designer was "inspired" by an extant print, haha! This is an awesome find, thanks for sharing.

That is beautiful fabric! I found some lovely printed fabric on sale last time I went to the shop, about $9 a metre down from $20 a metre! I was so excited!

Few weeks ago my girlfriend told me that she was fed up, so she packed her stuff and left me while I was taking a walk to cool off. When I got back, I was so messed up because I didn't even know what to do, it was like my whole life was coming to an end. That night I drove to a friend’s house and he was nice enough to give me a description of a man who did spells that could bring her back for me. He said this man brought her fiancĂ©e back to him after 2days. The man's email is emutemple@gamil.com, it was this man that then did a spell and brought Claire back to my life. She was now so humble and calm, she was respectful and lovely even more than i can imagine. This man is really strong and accountable. I never regret anything through him. meet him if you need help in your love life. visit his website you may find your solution there https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
