Chintz of blue, red and black all in various shades were commonly seen in chintz fabrics. Inspired from an original in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum in Colonial Williamsburg, chintz were often used to make women's gowns or jackets after 1760 in Europe but gaining popularity within the 1770s to about 1800. The gown or jacket may have a matching petticoat of the same fabric but petticoats were usually not made of printed fabrics unless the upper garment is also of the print. Men's banyans were also made of chintz. For example in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776, "Run away . . . a Dutch servant woman . . . took with her one cotton chintz gown" is cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Ivory linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
