Remnant Reddish Brown Linen, WLG 203, 1 yard & 25″ long
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.
