100% cotton, 45" wide
Muslin with a beautiful drape is called batiste today. In the last half of the 18th century fine linen cambric began to be made of cotton. At the turn of the 18th century gowns made of fine cotton muslin became the rage. In the The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London of 1792 two people "were indicted for burglariously and feloniously breaking and entering . . . and burglariously stealing therein . . . a muslin gown, value 40 s." White fine linen thread or fine white silk thread for hand sewing will match this fabric.
