Adapted from an 18th-century fabric from the Colonial Williamsburg collections. Monochromatic indigo blue printed cottons such as Hamilton Blue Floral would have been a good choice for balancing fashion and frugality. Unlike some other dyed cottons of the period, indigo was not fugitive, meaning it would not fade or change colors over time and could be cleaned more easily than other printed cottons.
