100% Linen, 5 oz, 58" Wide
Sometimes red and white stripe linens were used in the 18th century for men's trousers, jackets or waistcoats but may also be used for linings and for women's gowns, jackets and petticoats. In the book Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls there is an entry for 1781 in The Pennsylvania Packet, "Ran away . . . a Scotch Servant Girl . . . had on and took away . . . a . . . short gown . . . red stripe linen, home made." Off white linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
