Cross Barred Taffety WSV 161

$25.00

100% Silk, 55" wide

This cross bar has a 6 3/4" repeat of yellow and green stripes with three claret colored narrow lines surrounded with narrow very light gray lines. This would make an unforgettable gown, jacket or petticoat. Just as striking would be a gentlemen’s waistcoat or banyan. Taffety was often described in sale ads in America and Europe but they sometimes are included in runaway ads as well for example The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1774 "Run away . . .  two Irish servant women, one . . .  had on, and took with them . . .  one old taffaty gown, of a straw colour" cited in the book Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Either yellow or light green quilter's thread would work well for sewing button holes.
