This check linen is almost identical to one made into a pillowcase on page 53 of the book Cloth and Costume Check linen was commonly used as household linens, made into men's shirts but may also be used for linings and occasionally for women's gowns (usually Negros), trousers or even bonnets. In personal communication with Mike Barbieri there is an ad published in the 1768 Connecticut Journal, including "Run-away . . .  a Shoe maker, and Apprentice . . .  had on and carried with him . . .  two white Tow Shirts, one Check ditto. " Unbleached 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
