White Striped Cotton Gauze WCN 125


100% cotton, 45" wide

Very sheer cotton gauze was used in the 18th century for lady's aprons and handkerchiefs. Later it was used for the lightweight empire style gowns of the Napolionic period and chemisettes. For example in The Pennsylvania Gazette, of 1775, "Run away . . .  a servant woman . . .  had on, and took with her, . . .  a white gauze handkerchief" is cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls. For hand sewing try the very fine white silk thread or white fine linen thread. The picture is taken on a black background with the sleeve buttons on top and a slight fold to give you an idea of how sheer this cotton is. This fabric is white but the picture was taken under a yellow light.
