The original colourway for our Goldbridge design is Sage Green. Rachel Laritz, designer of The Glass Menagerie at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, chose a bespoke Burgundy colourway to be printed onto our Viscose Crepe. A beautifully authentic alternative.
Jenny Mearns, a vintage lover, blogger & seamstress chose Hampden in Viscose Crepe to recreate an original 1930’s Day Dress made using the Reconstructing History 1304 sewing pattern. Reconstructing History are an American based sewing pattern company, specialising in reproducing historical patterns.
You can see Jenny’s write up about her visit to our studio on on her blog ‘Annotations of Jenny’
Some of Maltings Fabrics prints are reproduced from garments selected at the Costume Archive at Worthing Museum. Each of the prints are taken from original daywear of the 1920’s to 1930’s. This part of the collection at Worthing is largely made up from donations made by local families. This means the collection is a beautifully authentic representation of real life clothes from their time.
