    Yes I love the colours and on the Judy Rothermel fabrics (Charleston IV)
    they seem to be pretty accurate with the dyes they use.

    I copied this :
    1850-1865, Madder style double pinks and browns. An alum mordant would give you a red/pink print while the use of mixed of alum and iron mordant would produce warm browns. These are reproductions of madder style prints. Artificial alizarin (the dye component of madder) was not discovered until 1869.

    Cool or what ??? Elle

    Fantastic site, Elle! Thanks so much. I love their Fabric Play Station where you can compare fabrics you want to see how they "go" with each other. What a super idea for online ordering!
