Brown Ground Chintz


100% cotton chintz, 45" wide

Printed cottons 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 printed fabrics. For example in The New Jersey Journal of 1781 an ad included "Ran away . . .  a Negro Wench . . .  had on or took with her a dark brown chintz gown" cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. White 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing this fabric.
