Dear Stella City Life Triangle Dot Fossil from Designed by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella Designs, this cotton print collection is perfect for quilting, apparel and home decor accents. Colors include dark grey and white.
The original fabric was used as a lining in christening gown from Løten, Norway, consisting of cape, stomacher and coif of white brocaded silk. The lining is of cotton, block printed in red and brownish black on white ground. The design imitates small the patterned silks for gentlemen’s wear, droguet liseré, from the mid 18th century(compare with NÄCKROS in Durán Textiles collection). The print could be dated to the 1780-ies or 90-ies, but the place of manufacture is not known.
