Blue and White 1/4" Stripe WLG 223


100% linen, ~4 oz., 56" wide

Blue and white stripes are some of the most commonly described in runaway accounts. A light weight linen like this was commonly used for cool summer women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns. Men's waistcoats and shirts as well as linins. In the 1779 Pennsylvania Evening Post, an ad included "Ran away . . .  a Dutch servant girl . . .  She had on a blue and white striped linen short gown" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. White linen thread for hand sewing and white cotton twill tape would work well for this material.
