Blue and white stripe linens dominate the 18th and early 19th century. This stripe linen would make a lite man's jacket or waistcoat but may also be used for linings and for women's gowns, jackets and petticoats. In the book Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls there is an entry for 1781 in The American Journal, "the House of the Subscriber, in Cranston, was broken open, and the following Articles were stolen . . . one striped Linen Petticoat" Off white linen thread will work well for hand sewing..

For extra large or larger the Kannik's Korner Bedgown pattern will be substituted.
