They're not the best pictures, but they are pictures!
This print is so awesome for mimicking 18th c "shell'd" prints. Although it looks surprisingly modern, check out these originals:
This type of one color, simple print would have been a nice, cheap fabric for a gown. Nothing fancy here!
Hillary Rizen has been doing some awesome research on 18th century prints. Wm. Booth, Draper is even carrying some of the prints she designed. Burnley and Trowbridge have also been researching and making custom prints heavily inspired from original prints. They are currently out of stock but are expecting more, new prints soon! Stay tuned!
I hope I get another chance to wear this dress and take good, proper pictures of it...
It's lined partly in white linen and partly in checked linen, for added anti-fancy-ness! :)
