100% cotton chintz, 45" wide
Inspired by the popular Hamilton Broadway hit musical, this chintz 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 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. Scarlet red linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
