100% Linen, ~12 oz., 57" wide
20" long remnant.
Drill and drilling were terms used for twill weave fabrics. This very durable drill is a thick, tight weave and we specifically had breeches in mind when we choose this fabric. It may also work well for a working class coat, jacket or waistcoats. The New-London Gazette in 1772, included an ad with "Ran away . . . a negro man slave . . . had on . . . a pair of brown drilling breeches." Brown linen thread will blend with the color of this linen.
