This weeks must have accessory is a fichu dated from the mid 1800s, which to my thinking is 1833-66. It seems, from my on-line searches, that fichus were more common in the 3os with capes and shawls being more common in the 40s. I hope there is someone more knowledgeable out there that can set me straight if I’m wrong on this.
I don’t know how easy it would be to find pina here in Canada so if I made this, I would have to use some other sheer material or order it on-line. If I made this, I would definitely keep the color. That purple trim really drew my eye to is. Wouldn’t that be lovely on a white or mauve day gown or purple evening gown?
