EGGPLANT linen's rich plum tone bled into Marc Chagall's whimsical scenes, coloring them with stains as tart and ripe as fresh blackberries. Impassioned purples came to embody the hue of life and love.
Inventive color was a vital strand in his fantastical scenes, taking his famous floating lovers, animals and musicians further from the realms of reality into a wondrous, escapist dream. He wrote, "Colour is everything, colour is vibration like music; everything is vibration."
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers
What is ‘base cloth width'? The term is used continually to describe shrinkage but I've not found a measurement that seems reasonable!
Good afternoon! Excellent question. The base cloth width is the width you see in the product description. In this specific instance - IL019 linen base width is 59" wide. After we weave the fabric, it is then dyed and softened. The dyeing and softening process shrinks the fabric from its original width. Therefore, IL019 Eggplant Signature Finish will be slightly narrower due to the shrinkage the fabric had while being dyed and finished after being woven.
Using the Signature Finish IL019 eggplant linen is my first experience with this finish. I have been a devoted Fabrics-Store.com customer for many years, working with almost all their types of linen, and this one is now my new favorite. Being a linen snob, I also have worked with linen fabric purchased from other places as well. I can now say that I agree with F-S that it is super soft, and am amazed at the difference in wrinkling between this and all other linens I have ever used. It barely wrinkles!
I added 4" to length. Made size 8-10. It was perfect. Only needed to take in the arm holes in slightly. I also made this dress in black linen and natural linen. I used the blog and the pattern instructions. I suggest you do both. I will definitely be making more. Love my dresses. Thank you for the free download.
What a wonderful color, love my dress. I had a simple black dress that is so comfortable to wear and wanted an identical one in a lovely color so I made this one out of that one. It is a simple sleeveless A-line dress with French seams and same fabric binding on neck and armholes. The front has five pleats that elevate the dress to a more interesting style.
I made this rub-off of an Old Navy linen skirt using eggplant IL019 Signature Finish linen. It's too bad the eggplant color is now sold out because it is beautiful. The Signature Finish is my absolute favorite fabric to work with now after this project. This picture was taken after I had worn the skirt for 2 whole days, doing errands, in and out of the car, walking all over town, and it still looks fresh with hardly any wrinkles. It's also super soft and the most comfortable fabric to wear that I've ever experienced. The cut of this skirt is unlike any that I have ever seen in the 19 years since I bought it. None of my pattern design books show gores of this shape. That contributed to its charm and its challenge.
