Amelias Blues - Charm Pack

Blues, cool and crisp. Buttery yellows, warm and cozy. Chocolates, just delicious. Frame these colors with soft ivory and you have AmeliaĠ³ Blues.

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 womenĠ³ 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 adopted.
