So Retro is this 53x70" yellow gingham-like checkered hand fringed tablecloth. Can't you just see this on Donna Reed's kitchen table? Or, maybe Aunt Bee's? Classic diner look. This tablecloth fits a 5' table with a draping of 5" on each end.

This rectangular tablecloth is a printed design on a woven cotton sateen fabric. This fabric was an exclusive of the former Summer Hill Ltd business who sold to high end designers, upholsterers and architects. The fabric is called Summer Check Yonquil. The fabric is new but nearly vintage. The selvage shows the manufacture date of 1992.

Need a custom size? This fabric is available for custom sizes. 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.

This is a new tablecloth. Need more than one? There are others available in my studio shop. Use the "Contact The Seller" link on this page to ask any questions or request a trim scrap of the fabric before purchasing. I will reply promptly. Click on the "Home" button at the top left of this page to browse all my handmade items.

To launder: Pre-soak stains with detergent; no bleach. COLD wash separately; tumble dry. Use spray starch to aid in ease of pressing and restore finish. I, myself, hand fringe or hem all the cloths in my home in a clean environment; no cigarette fumes of any kind.

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

I will ship outside the United States. Use the link on this page to contact me with your location. I will promptly reply with a shipping quote. Remember to include your location.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

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.

Materials Used

100% Cotton sateen

More Info

My photographs are intended to present a table adorned with a cloth. The size of one's table and the size of the cloth ordered to cover a specific table will determine how much drape or drop the cloth falls over the edge of that table.
