Fashion fabric of the CW Era

In 1852 Prince Albert, consort to Queen Victoria, purchased the Balmoral estate and original castle. The Royal family visited frequently and embraced the local Scottish style......Tartans. Plaids of all scales quickly became a fashion statement on both sides of the Atlantic. 


Document color...printed plaid from A Soldier's Quilt

The plaids could be printed or yarn dyed. The scale varied from the above which would have been the height of Parisian fashion...gold stripe to gold stripe is 1 3/4 "....to something as small as an apron check that was more affordable. This document coloration is gold adjacent to dull lavender with a soft gray green.  See below....for the other 2 colorations in the Washington Street Studio line...A Soldier's Quilt.
