This pretty cotton fichu is made in the Colonial design. Used as a shoulder wrap or scarf you will look like you stepped out of the pages of history.

Before the 1700s, the fichu was usually worn by servants, ladies who were poor, and elderly ladies. Often these women received hand me downs from upper class women who often wore fashionably low cut attire. These lower class women often needed these clothes but didn't want to sacrifice their modesty for sake of fashion. To solve this problem, they wore fichus to cover the exposed areas around their necks. This style of fichu was often seen worn by women in the 18th century.

This listing is for a shaped style fichu. Normally the fichu or modesty piece was a triangular shape and women tucked them inside their bodices and at their waist to hide exposed skin. The shape of this is rounded and sits on the shoulders and drapes down covering the front of your bodice. It has less fabric to tuck and thus sits were you need it to without having to worry all day about ends popping out.

Made from 2 layers of cotton fabric (broadcloth). It is edged with a matching eyelet lace to give it a lovely feminine feel.

This shawl can be tied in the front or left untied and tucked. Either is correct.

Measurements are: 60" Length and 12" width

This fichu (shawl) can be made in a variety of colors if you do not like the standard "white" color. If you want a different color, your lace may not match exactly but will coordinate. Please email me if you are interested in another color.

This item is made when ordered. It will ship 3 days after order and payment.

This shawl is shipped USPS priority mail envelope. Item can be shipped with another item in the shop for no additional shipping charge. Please see my shipping policies for information on this.

If you have any questions, please email me and I will gladly get back to you.
