Blue Check WLN 647


100% linen, 58" wide

Blue check linen was likely the most common check fabric produced during the 18th and into the early 19th century. With the density of color seen in this fabric it's more representative of what is found later in the early 19th century. This fabric can be made into women's aprons and men's shirts but may also be used for linings and occasionally for women's gowns (usually Negros), trousers or even bonnets. In the 1773 Newport Mercury, "Ran away . . .  an indented Irish maid servant . . .  and is supposed to have had on . . .  a checked apron" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
