Tow and Linen Stripe WLN 541

$10.00

100% Linen, 60" Wide

Tow and linen striped gowns are frequently described in American runaway ads. This linen would make a wonderful woman's petticoat, jacket, or gown although a man's waistcoat or shirts as well as linings may be made from this stripe linen. For example advertised in The New-Jersey Journal of 1779 "Ran away . . . an apprentice girl . . . had on and took away with her . . . three striped short gowns, one of linsey, the other two of tow and linen". This quote is taken from Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls Unbleached linen thread for hand sewing and natural 1" cotton twill tape would work well for this material. Matching tape is often used for binding petticoats and bedgowns.
