100% cotton, 45" wide
Check cottons like this will work well for 18th century aprons and handkerchiefs or empire style gowns. In the The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London of 1799, two suspects "were indicted for breaking and entering the dwelling-house of John Dearding". In the testimony a witness accused them of taking "a check cotton handkerchief". White fine linen thread for hand sewing will match this fabric.
