Inspired by the life of Amelia Bloomer, 1818-1894,
I've chosen fabrics from my collection of antique
quilts for the prints in this collection. Amelia was
a suffragist, a social activist, and the editor of the
temperance newspaper, The Lily. Her interest in the
reform of women’s clothing led to her promoting
the Rational Dress Movement during the
Victorian Era. She especially advocated the
wearing of a form of pants called pantaloons,
as being sensible and practical under a
short dress. Women accepted the idea of
wearing pantaloons, mostly in the form of
undergarments, and while
Amelia did not invent the
pantaloons, the nickname
bloomers was adoptedCirca 1840-1890 this 19th century group is sure to delight reproduction quilters, vintage textile enthusiasts, and anyone who just loves beautiful fabric.
