100% Silk, 54" wide
This asymmetrical wide stripe satin is on a changeable green to light brown taffeta that could be used for a gentlemen’s waistcoat and coat or a lady's petticoat, gown or jacket. Silk garments were often stolen as in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey recorded in 1779 of a man and a woman who "were indicted, the first for feloniously stealing . . . three striped silk gowns, value 28 s." Several colors of silk quilter's thread would be possible for button holes depending on the look you want.
