The Solids





Remember this jacket I purchased? I bought it as much to wear as to be inspired by.
I was curious how many different fabrics the maker used in the patchwork, so I decided to find out, and post the results.
I love vintage fabrics, and I'm really inspired by these faded & torn colors and prints. I think these fabrics might be from post WWII era Japan...something about the colors and designs. One of the prints appears to be a Kanji character (you'll see it in a future post)! Enjoy!
