The brown linen bed gown (see detailed views) has 3/4 sleeves fastened with straight pins and was intended to be worn at home.

The white linen kerchief is tucked into the corset. The apron is of blue and white striped linen; the type of material is also known as "ticking." A petticoat, also of blue linen (finished width 90-108 inches) is tied at the waist.

Like the apron, the split-bottomed bodice ("jumps") is also of blue and white striped linen (ticking). The bodice is boned and laces up the front.

The cap is linen, with ruffles, lappets, and ties.
