Plaid in the 1830s

I am in love with all things plaid, so I wear it whenever I can. I'm using the plaid silk I mentioned in a previous post for my 1830s dress. I've found some beautiful examples of plaid in the 1830s, some original gowns and some paintings. I'm still not sure my fabric is 100% correct for the era, but I'm taking a chance with it. It's a similar type of plaid to the green and white silk, so I think its okay.

Such an interesting fabric.
