Wavy Floral Chintz

$19.99

45" wide


Copied from an original print in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum in Colonial Williamsburg this chintz could be made into a women's jacket or gown. 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 Virginia Gazette of 1770, "Stolen . . .  two chintz gowns, one dark, the other light, with sprigs and branches, and a coat of the same" is cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Ivory linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
