Besides blue, brown stripes were the second most commonly used in early America and Europe in the 18th and early 19th centuries. They were commonly used for women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns. Men's waistcoats and possibly shirts as well as an occasional lining were also made of light brown stripe linen. For example an ad in the 1779 Pennsylvania Gazette had "Was stolen last night . . .  16 miles from Philadelphia . . .  two striped linen short gowns . . .  The above articles were stole by a woman, who . . .  had on a striped linen short gown" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached linen thread for hand sewing would work well for this material.
