100% Silk, 54" wide
A bluish green that changes to a light brown with gold satin stripes would be great for gentlemen’s waistcoat and coats as well as lady's petticoats, gowns and jackets. Silk garments were in the possession of the poor as well as the wealthy such as in this The Virginia Gazette ad of 1773, "RUN away . . . a Convict Servant . . . an Englishman; by Trade a Bricklayer . . . with sundry other Clothes which he stole, namely . . . a striped Silk Waistcoat." Drab silk quilter's thread will work well for hand working button holes.
