Red Spotted Muslin - $18.00 yd.


( / )


"Spot'd" textiles were popular thru out the 18th and 19th century. Varied sizes and methods of spotting were used with direct print, and resist print both being popular. 100% cotton textiles early in the 18th century were manufactured in India and imported, later they were produced by others such as Manchester. We personally have seen printed and resist prints as early as the 1740's and of course well into the 19th century. This beautiful sheer muslin is reproduced from an privately owned early 19th century gown in the DAR Museum exhibit book "An Agreeable Tyrant" which we personally examined. We have duplicated that fineness in this beautiful textile as well as the original color.  You can reproduce this gown with the Surplice Dress c1810 pattern.
