Inspiration to this design I have found from a sewing roll used for needlework located in Winterthur Museum collection. It is dated 1780-1800 and shows how tiny fabric rests were used in useful way. The Story does not tell, what the original garment has been,
- maybe a waistcoat for a gentleman... only Your creativity limits the possibilities...

Cotton Linen Would have a nice surface for a waist coat, Cotton Cretonne I would Choose for inside of Caps or Banyan.

I have given name to this fabric after Harriott Pinckney Horry...
In 1770 a young South Carolina woman, recently married, wrote her name and the date on the first page of a book of blank pages. In this way Harriott Horry began a cookbook which, by the common practice of the time, she called a receipt book. The work, which came to contain mostly recipes and also some household directions, reveals much about the eating and drinking habits of her time and place, but also something about Harriott herself, her world of the South Carolina lowlands, and the lives of the rice and indigo planters and merchants.

Grandma's Laundry Tricks:
  • Do not Brush, Rub or Scrub the printed fabrics too hard to avoid damage to print quality.
  • Wash with similar colours to avoid staining or tint.
  • Please do not overuse the centrifuge, it only wrinkles the fabric.
  • Please do not overuse the dryer or use extrem heat, this only tears the fibres apart.
  • A dehumidifier is a great invention to dry the fabrics and clothes.
  • Dry the fabrics outdoors, if possible, but not under direct sunlight.
  • Environmentally awareness and the durability of clothing go hand in hand.
  • Do You really need to use the fabric softener or is white vinegar good enough?
