Regency Over-Gown in the Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery


Celebrating the Fiber Arts: The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery in Historic Deerfield, MA., United States. 

Flynt Center of Early New England Life - Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery

This is a fine collection of early American textiles and costumes. The exhibition is permanent but changing, so I took the opportunity to photograph the collection on show as closely as possible when I stopped by two days ago.
Below is an over-gown from Townsend, Massachusetts area.
Plain weave white muslin with tambour embroidery; plain weave linen.
