Paisley was IN during the war era and this lovely wrapper sure has the paisleys!

What a sweet picture! Not only is this a beautiful wrapper, but she has a lovely apron petticoat showing under it. I have a beautiful old remnant of cloth like this that I'm going to make an apron from too... once I make my wrapper. :D

Even though this is a little later than my era, I love how this exemplifies the wild colors and fine handwork that went into wrappers!

Wowie zowie! Lots of appliqued fabric and fringe! She must have had fun making this one.

I have a friend who had cloth specially woven in India just so she could replicate this wrapper!

I love this color scheme
