Wide Blue and Natural Stripe WLN 585


100% linen, ~5 oz., 60" wide

Blue and white stripes are some of the most commonly described in runaway accounts. This blue and natural stripe linen has 1 1/4" (3.16 cm) wide even stripes. They were commonly used for women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns. Men's waistcoats and shirts as well as an occasional lining were also made of blue and white stripe linen. In the 1776 Pennsylvania Gazette, an ad included "Was stolen . . .  a pair of blue and white striped trowsers" as cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls. White linen thread for hand sewing and white 1" cotton twill tape would work well for this material.
