Yellow Changeable Lutestring WSV 177

$24.00

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 changeable silk. This is made of a bright yellow that almost unperceivably changes to a greyish yellow. Throughout the 18th century taffeta was used for women's gowns, jackets, and petticoats. Men wore taffeta as jackets, coats and waistcoats and banyans. For example in the 1715 Proceedings of the Old Bailey "(a little Boy ) of Harrow on the Hill , was indicted for stealing 8 Yards of Lutestring". For hand sewing either drab or pale blue quilter's silk may be the closest match to this fabric.
