Blue and White Check WLN 676

$15.99

100% linen, ~5 oz., 59" wide

Most commonly blue check linen is an indigo blue, or a true blue. This blue can go from almost black to light blue. This light blue check linen has a greenish tint to it. This weight is suitable for working class shirts and aprons. The size of the lines are extremely similar to several original check linens found in museums. Most checks available today are half white and half blue. The majority of checks found in the billet books at The Foundling Museum in London are mostly white with narrower blue stripes. This fabric could be made into women's aprons and men's shirts but may also be used for linings and occasionally for women's gowns (usually Negros) or even bonnets. In the book Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls there is an entry for 1771 in The Pennsylvania Gazette, "Run away . . .  a Welsh servant girl . . .  she had on, and took with her . . .  1 white and some check aprons". White 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
