50s Sylvia Chalmers fabric cushion










Here's a cushion I've made from some 50s fabric that I believe to be designed by Sylvia Chalmers. Here fabrics are in the new V&A fabric patterns book.

Love this fabric and your cushion - great how you have managed to track the designer down too.

Lovely photo! I didn't know there was a new V&A textile book, I've been coveting the rare and expensive 50s furnishing fabrics book for a while! Just had a look on their website, is that the V&A Pattern - The Fifties book? And I saw the online shop has lots of your Clothkit designs too!
btw did you hear the sad news about Lucienne Day this week?
