100% Linen, 60" Wide
This blue striped linen has an 1/8" dark indigo blue stripe with 3/8" creamy white which is identical to some seen in The Foundling Museum and in 18th century period artwork. Blue striped linen like this was commonly used for women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns. Men's waistcoats and shirts as well as an occasional lining were also made of blue and white striped linen. In the 1774 Boston Evening Post, an ad reported "Ran away . . . an Apprentice . . . to a Shoemaker’s Trade . . . He carried away . . . one striped Linen Shirt" used from personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Off white linen thread for hand sewing and white cotton twill tape would work well for this material.
