Fabric: Silk, Cotton, Linen, or Wool; Plain or Striped . Woven or knit fabric were both used. Woven included Kerseymere, Cassimere, and other twills (such as Nankeen), Corduroy, and plain weaves, such as wool flannel or broadcloth. Knits included wool or cotton double knit, interlock, or jersey, which were called Worsted Stocking in England and Tricot in France. Kerseymere and Cassimere were similiar fabrics. Though non-period, fabric woven with Lycra, also known as Spandex, works very well in the tighter fitting pants. There is more information about appropriate fabric and where to obtain it is in the pattern notes.
