Palace Blue Flowers Chintz


100% cotton chintz, 45" wide

This reproduction of a 1750 to 1760s chintz in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, has a 14" repeat. 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 Packet of 1781, "Run away . . . a Scotch Servant Girl . . . had on and took away with her . . . a blue ground chintz short gown" is cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Light blue linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
