Mousseline

By | June 3, 2016

Part of the ‘Antique Fabrics‘ series.

A 19th century term for muslin. I’ve run into it a lot in my late-19th/early-20th century catalog reproductions, usually when describing dainty blouses and dresses. Dainty was a very popular term in Gimbel’s 1915 catalog.

Do not confuse it with mousseline de soie.

I feel let down. I was hoping for something involving chocolate.
