100% Silk, 54" wide
There is a limited supply of only 3 yards of this gorgeous fabric.
Even stripes of one inch gold and one inch gold with tiny ribs mark this as an unforgettable jacket or petticoat. Just as striking would be
a gentlemen’s waistcoat or jacket. Silk garments often are included in theft trials in London such as in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey recorded in London in 1783 "was indicted for feloniously stealing . . . one striped silk waistcoat, value 2 s. 6 d." Buff colored or yellow quilter's thread would work well for sewing button holes.
