The earthy ginger of Apricot linen echoes Pierre Bonnard's spicy Mediterranean oranges - colors that became a central focus in his flickering, light speckled canvases.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Nice Linen

I purchased this mid weight linen to use with with blue heaven for a modified blouse/jumper two piece outfit. It feels wonderful and the color is actually as pictured.

great fabric, beautiful color

I used this fabric for a camisole-style nightgown. Can't say enough about how beautifully this sews up (like all of these linens!). Any step that requires pressing will stay in place and rarely needs careful pinning. I often embellish my projects with some simple embroidery, and this fabric accepts the stitching very nicely. Love it.

I needed to find good looking shells for underneath suits for my job. My search for high quality/attractive tops ended in vain. Which led me to making my own. Happily, I landed on Fabric-Store and their high quality linens and free patterns. Here is one of my favorites: the Chelsea T, in Apricot 3.5. Great color, comfortable, and so easy to work with. I love using their linens for my sewing projects. The drape of their fabric means the piece is always flattering and the quality of the fabric means that the piece holds up under many a wear and wash. I couldn't be more delighted to have found Fabric Store and to have launched into a new hobby--sewing my way into a new wardrobe!

I actually bought this fabric intending to make curtains but it's such a nice color, I decided instead to make a romper from one of my mom's c.1970 patterns...and you can tell from the wrinkles I've been living in it since! Such a beautiful color, very light-weight but not too sheer for a garment and holds its shape very well for cutting and sewing.

Allwell sleeveless box top size 2, added 1/2" to sleeve to make it easier to sew.

Used this lighter weight linen to make the Linen Swing blouse by Fabrics-Stores. Perfect combination of fabric and pattern.

IL020 Apricot for this nightgown. So fun to sew on - and a great canvas for embroidery.
