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

This linen has a 3/8" indigo blue stripe bound by a white pin stripe. This linen could be used to make a woman's petticoat, jacket, or gown although a man's waistcoat or shirt as well as linings may be made from this striped linen. For example advertised in The Connecticut Courant of 1770 "Run away . . .  a servant girl . . .  had on, and took with her . . .  two short loose gowns, the one striped linsey, the other striped linen" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Navy blue linen thread is a good match for hand sewing.
