100% Silk, 47" wide
Silk taffeta of a true gorgeous pink color would make a gorgeous jacket or petticoat. Just as striking would be
a gentlemen’s coat, jacket or waistcoat. Taffety was often described in sale ads in America and Europe and was often taken by thieves such as in this record from The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London where in 1774 a man "was indicted for stealing . . . one pink silk petticoat, value 4 s." Pink silk quilter's thread is a near perfect match for sewing button holes.
