Is this the Prettiest Vintage Fabric...ever?

Vintage 1940s Sweet Peas Barkcloth
...well, of course, if you love vintage fabrics as much as we do, then the latest find is nearly always the prettiest ever! But when I discovered this lovely vintage barkcloth, I very definitely felt a quickening of my heartbeat! So, what makes it so very gorgeous?
Beautiful Colours and Dainty Trellis
Well, it's a 1940s barkcloth with the most adorable design of colourful sweet peas clambering up a dainty trellis - and oh! - that beautiful blue background is THE perfect shade of blue.
Gorgeous Texture and Design
Finally, the barkcloth weave seems to give the design some added 'oomph!' don't you think? That little extra something which confirms that this is one heck of a pretty fabric. But don't let us sway you - what do you think?
