Ett par kjolfickor ca.1750
Chester County (Pennsylvania, USA) Historical Society 1993.765
Blocktryckt linne med målade detaljer. Mönster i brunt, blått, beige och två nyanser av rosa på vit botten.
Detta eleganta naturalstiska blommönster är typiskt för mitten av 1700-talet. Trycket är antagligen europeiskt (franskt?) och importerat till de Engelska kolonierna i Amerika. Dessa kjolfickor sägs vara sydda av en viss Susanna Hunts 1749.
Kjolfickor bars knutna om midjan ovanpå underkjolen. De var ofta dolda av en kjol, klänning jacka eller förkläde, men kunde nås genom fickslitsar i överplaggen.

Pair of hanging pockets c. 1750
Chester County (Pennsylvania) Historical Society 1993.765
Printed and painted linen, brown ,blue, tan and two shades of pink on off white ground
The elegant naturalistic vegetable pattern is typical for mid-18th century. It is probably of European (French?) origin and imported to colonial America. The hanging pockets are said to in made by a certain Susanna Hunts in 1749.
Hanging pockets were worn tied at the wais over the petticoat. They were often concealed by a dress, over-petticoat, short gown or jacket, but made accessible through pocket slits in the over garments.
Printed linen as well as cotton were used both for furnishing and clothing.
