Gray Striped Linen WLN 645


100% linen, ~5 oz., 61" wide

Occasionally other color stripes come up in 18th century runaway descriptions. This stripe is off white and grey with a black pin stripe. They were sometimes used for women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns. Men's waistcoats and shirts as well as an occasional lining. In the 1776 Pennsylvania Packet, an ad included "Ran away . . .  an Irish servant girl . . .  had on and took with her . . .  two striped linen short gowns " as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Off white linen thread for hand sewing and black or off white 1" cotton twill tape would work well for this material.
