    Do you have any of the selvage that might say who made the fabric or any identifying marks ?

    No purple dresses on black (so far), but these are some of the best sources for novelty prints. I may have to get some of that rain boots on black at J&O!!

    Cindy, I'm sorry, but I haven't come across the fabric you're looking for, but I can give you the link of a wonderful store for you to peruse through.

    Their novelty fabrics are numerous and lovely.

    Hope you find something. Will be thinking of you.
    Hugs Joanne
