Black wool flannel was commonly used as a lining. Specifically in men's clothing black flannel was used to make waistcoats and jackets. Women's gowns, jackets and petticoats during the 17th and 18th centuries were also made of wool flannel. As cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls "Run Away . . .  an Irish servant girl . . .  had on, and took with her, when she went away, a black and white linsey petticoat, black quilt, a flannel ditto" was advertised in The Pennsylvania Gazette in 1773. Black 50/3 linen thread or 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing and black worsted wool tape matches this fabric. Matching tape is often seen on the hems of petticoats and binding of bedgowns. This flannel is a plain weave. For sewing button holes try black silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
