Color and scale

The Divers fabrics arrived on Thursday!

The designs were taken from samples in the book, titled Divers, dated 1863 and probably from Mulhouse, France. The fabrics were dyed with madder and depending on the mordant used, the colors vary from a rust to lavender to almost black.

Scale is ideal for a reproduction Civil War Era gown.
