This lilac check tablecloth, whether you call it farmhouse or retro, is a nice lightweight, smooth finish cotton sateen fabric. The rectangular, 52x70" size, lilac and white gingham-like tablecloth will nicely fit a 5' banquet style table. The fringed tablecloth will have a 5" drop over the end edges of a 5' table.

The printed cotton fabric's design was an exclusive to the former national distributor and manufacturer, Summer Hill Ltd. The color is a little more blue appearing in the second picture than the fabric actually is. This fabric was called Summer Check Lilac and is nearly vintage. The selvage of the fabric shows the manufacture date of 1992. Request a free trim scrap to see and feel the quality of the fabric before purchasing if you like.

Note that this gingham check type design is printed onto the woven fabric. The fringing does not always follow the printed lines of the check on the shorter ends of the tablecloth. This happens because the printing cannot be matched to the weave; likely due to the varying thicknesses of the threads woven to create the cloth. It is by no means a defect and is not a negative towards the wonderful retro look of this tablecloth.

Need a different size or more than one? This fabric is available for a custom size.

When deciding the size of a desired tablecloth, measure the top of your table. Then visualize how much you want the cloth to drape over the edge. Double that number and add it to the length and width measurements of your table top. Then you are ready to order your custom made tablecloth. In some cases I may have to piece the cloth to make it the size you're requesting.

Use the "Contact The Seller" link on this page to request a trimming scrap if desired, for additional quantities or sizes, or to ask any questions. Please click on the "Home" button at the top left of this page or one of the studio sections to the right to browse my other handmade items.

I have created this tablecloth in my home in a clean environment where no cigarette fumes of any kind are present. To launder this item, pre-soak stains in laundry detergent; no bleach. Machine wash separately on COLD setting; tumble dry. Remove promptly. For best results, steam press using spray starch to ease pressing and restore finish.

It is my goal to ship within 24 to 48 hours of receipt of an order on a USPS service day. Custom orders will require up to one week to process and ship. I will advise ship date upon receipt of a custom order inquiry. Custom orders are not returnable; however, I will work with you to create the custom item you envision to your satisfaction.

I will ship outside the United States. Before making a purchase, use the contact link to request a shipping quote. I will reply promptly. Remember to include your location and postal code in your request.

I saw an opportunity to help my daughter with her college debt when I saw this fabric on an auction website. The fabrics, some of which were exclusive to the business that had closed, were very high end qualities that were only sold to designers and architects.
