Virgil's Fine Goods Exclusive Printed Reproduction Fabric on 50/50 Organic Cotton/Peace Silk
"Diana" is a direct reproduction of a gown fabric in Amber's collection of antique textiles. The original is a two-piece afternoon shirt/skirt dress with a wide neckline on genuine muslin, thought to be most likely made around 1900-1910. Examination of the fibers in the fragments indicate that it is a cotton fabric, but amazingly the gown in its entirety can fit into a child's shoebox without incident. Genuine muslin is incredibly sheer and almost extinct. This reproduction is as close as we could get to the original coloring as it likely would have been in the early 1900s, with a palest ecru background and dusty blue flowers.
Our reproduction is tightly woven, very sheer and has an incredible weightless drape with a smooth texture, very similar in hand to the original. This fabric would be suitable for shirtwaists, dresses, children's clothes, etc.
This fabric is a certified organic textile, made with peace silk. Sold by the yard. VFG Fabrics are limited quantities, but may be restocked throughout the year.
