100% cotton chintz, 45" wide
Two yards and 5" long remnant.
Inspired by the popular Hamilton Broadway hit musical, this brown print on a cream ground could be 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 Royal Gazette published in New York in 1782, "Run away . . . a Negro Wench . . . took off with her two striped callico long gowns" is cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Ivory linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
