Red Spotted Muslin - $18.00 yd.


( / )


"Spot'd" textiles were popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. The spots varied in size, and could have been achieved through a number of different processes, with direct print and resist methods both being popular. In our studies, we have seen printed and resist prints as early as the 1740's, continuing well into the 19th century. 

In the earliest parts of the 18th century, 100% cotton textiles were manufactured in India and imported to the British markets, before being produced later in other regions, such as Manchester.

This beautiful sheer muslin is reproduced from a privately-owned, early-19th century gown in the DAR Museum exhibit book "An Agreeable Tyrant" , which we personally examined, to bring you a textile that duplicates the fineness and color of the original. You can reproduce this gown with the Surplice Dress c1810 pattern.
