100% Silk, 54" Wide
Silk fabric with a simple alternating pattern could make a strong statement as a gentlemen’s waistcoat and coat as well as a lady's petticoat, gown or jacket. Silk garments were in the possession of the poor as well as the wealthy such as in this Pennsylvania Gazette ad of 1781, "Ran Away . . . a Negroe Woman . . . She had a variety of clothes, among which are . . . a striped silk jacket" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Ivory silk thread will work well for hand sewing this silk.
