1/4″ Black Cotton Tape, 10 Yard Ball


Made in the USA

I’ve not seen black cotton tape used in historic garments. This is provided because people of many time periods buy these products so maybe garments later than c. 1815 used black cotton tape. This 1/4″ cotton tape works very well for inserting in button shanks for sewing on buttons with shanks. The directions for this method of attaching buttons are found in The Workman’s Guide to Tailoring Stitches. Directions for securely sewing cotton tape on to a garment are found in The Lady’s Guide to Plain Sewing Book II. In 1783 in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London “WILLIAM HATCHMAN was indicted for feloniously stealing . . .  24 yards of cotton tape, value 4 s.”
