Blue Teal Changeable Lutestring WSV 169


100% silk 54" wide

Lutestring is one of the types of taffeta available during the 17th and 18th centuries. Lutestring was often changeable as is this plain weave ocean blue and aqua green changeable silk. Throughout the 18th century taffeta was used for women's gowns, jackets, and petticoats. Men wore taffeta as jackets, coats and waistcoats and banyans. In the 1775 Boston News-Letter an advertisment included "To Be Sold . . .  A fine Assortment of Ducapes, plain and changeable Lutestrings, some nice grey and bloom Ditto, India Taffities, Silk and Sattins for Cloaks, of all Prices" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. For hand sewing blue quilter's silk matches this fabric.
