Irish stuff was produced both in Norwich and Spitalfields specifically for women's dresses and petticoats but could possibly be used for women's jackets. For example in The Boston Evening Post an ad in 1774 included "Run away . . . a Maid Servant . . . carried with her a long dark Gown of cross-barr'd Stuff" cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls.
