Womanâ€™s Printed Muslin Dress, 1836-1838, fabric 1790-1818
This very fine and delicate design, the ground densely covered with leaves, is in the style of William Kilburn (1745-1818), designer and calico printer in the late 18th century. The fabric must have been highly prized as this dress has been re-made from an earlier dress, and is well worn.
Cotton muslin, hand block printed with pencilled blue, black silk net collar, lined white cotton.
