Blue and white checks are the most common found in runaway descriptions and swatch books from the 18th to early 19th century. This fabric was commonly 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 1772 New York Journal, "Run away . . .  two Irish servant women . . .  had on . . .  small check aprons each" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Off white 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
