Reddish Brown Linen, WLG 203

$5.75

100% Linen, 6.5 oz, 60″ Wide

 

This is a cinnamon brown that is seen as the body of stays in several 18th century originals. This could also make a distinctive gown or waistcoat. For example in The Pennsylvania Mercury and Universal Advertiser of 1775, “Run away . . .  an English woman . . .  now a servant . . .  had on, . . .  [an] old patched reddish colour’d gown” as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached 35/2 linen thread is the best match to this linen.
