This kit is designed to make an apron that will pass the most stringent authenticity standards. Working class aprons c. 1750-1780 were often made of check linen. This check linen is reproduced from several extant samples from both the UK and America. In the 1770 Pennsylvania Gazette, “Run away . . . an English servant woman . . . took with her . . . several aprons, one of them check linen” as cited in Wives, Slaves, & Servant Girls.
