Exotic Flowers Chintz

$16.50

100% cotton chintz, 45" wide

We could not resist this chintz with the many bright colors! Reproduced from an original chintz dated as 1730 to 1800 in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum in Colonial Williamsburg, chintz were often used to make women's gowns or jackets. The gown or jacket may have a matching petticoat of the same fabric but petticoats were usually not made of printed fabrics unless the upper garment is also of the print. Men's banyans were also made of chintz. For example in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1777, "Run away . . .  a servant woman . . .  had on, and took with her, a light chintz gown" is cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Off white linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
