True confessions time.  I am a complete sucker for ’30s and ’40s reproduction fabrics.  I always have to control my urge to buy mountains of bolts of wee little duck and shepherd girl prints because a) not everyone (most sane people) love them as much as I do; b) they are usually such small prints that they don’t translate well online and c) they are usually such small prints that they don’t make much of an impact on bags, clothing, etc. 

Imagine my glee when Marcus Brothers came out with Aunt Grace Ties One On–problems b and c solved!  These are large-scale Aunt Grace prints, perfect for aprons, skirts, kids clothes and more!

Check out the whole collection. Be sure to click through to the individual product pages to see a ruler for scale.  (Note:  There are a few fantastic coordinating dot prints in this group that are small-scale.  Again, see the ruler.)
