Originating in India and the Middle East and introduced to Europe as early as the 17th century, muslin was described as "delicately woven cotton fabric" With the advent of the Spinning Jenny, it’s popularity soared during the last quarter of the 18th century and into the 19th century. It was considered highly desirable for its lightness, and ease of cleaning.  This "fretwork & lace" pattern is one that we have seen in Ackermann's plates. One example from 1809 you can find here.  It’s white color is highly desirable and was especially popular in the teens of the 19th century.  It is well suited for gowns,  over gowns and half gowns as well as accessories such as aprons, neckerchiefs, caps, tuckers and mantelets.
