Tow and Linen Stripe WLN 696


100% linen, ~6.5 oz., 54" wide

Tow and linen striped men's shirts and women's gowns are frequently described in American runaway ads. This linen would make a wonderful woman's petticoat, jacket, or gown a man's waistcoat, shirt or trousers as well as linings may be made from this stripe linen. For example from personal communication with Mike Barbieri advertised in The New-London Gazette of 1771 "Ran away . . .  an Apprentice Boy . . .  Had on . . .  two strip'd Tow-Cloth Shirts". Unbleached linen thread for hand sewing and natural 1" cotton twill tape would work well for this material. Matching tape is often used for binding petticoats and bedgowns.
