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 1773 Providence Gazette had "RUN away . . .  an Apprentice Boy . . .  Carried away with him . . .  two Jackets without Sleeves, one striped, the other brown" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Unbleached or off white linen thread for hand sewing would work well for this material.
