Grey Beige Changeable Lutestring WSV 170


100% silk 54" wide

Lutestring is one of the many types of taffeta available during the 17th and 18th centuries. This plain weave changeable silk is of a warm pinky beige that changes to a soft grey with a hint of blue. 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 Pennsylvania Evening Post, of 1776, "Ran away . . .  an Irish servant girl . . .  She also took with her a changeable mantua gown" is cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls. For hand sewing drab silk quilter's thread will match this fabric fairly well.
