I have some yardage of a blue/grey 100% medium weight cotton that I'm assuming
is a sort of semi herringbone weave fabric. I'm tempted to make a late 1850's to early 1860's men's day wear vest out of it, but wonder if it is a fabric weave that was available at that time.
My knowledge of period fabrics is usually quite well honed, but this one leaves me a bit hesitant.
Any input would be much appreciated:
