My Two Early Calico Dresses

I have seen some lovely displays of antique fabric.. I love the early blue calico clothing, but the prices are too much for my budget.  I recently came across these black calicos.. I love them and can't wait to display them.  They are from the late 1800s.

I am pretty sure the black calicos were for mourning, but I love them just the same..  when I look at these old pieces of history I wonder about the women or young ladies who wore them, and what their lives were like.. 

I would love to have a dress form to display a dress on,  but if not I will put them on a peg rack in my bedroom.  

I feel honored to own such lovely pieces of history.
