The damp, earthy green of DUSTY LOTUS Linen brought shadowy depths into John Constable's windswept landscapes, lending them the fresh coolness of the British countryside.
Glowering, tempestuous skies hang over his brooding scenes, while the land below ripples in and out of the light, shifting from sunlit leaves to moody, cold shadows. Shifting patterns of light across land and sky fascinated him for his entire career, as he observed, “… let the form of an object be what it may – light, shade and perspective will always make it beautiful.”

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

Gorgeous shade of green
Reviewer: Lisa

Love this shade of green, like a deep earthy darker green, not to bright or dull. Was so inspired by the wrap dress posted in the blog and I love greens! I'm hunting for the perfect wrap dress pattern and have made a muslin on one that needs alterations before I cut into this nice linen. So happy to have found fabrics-store! My linen fabric collection is growing!

Beautiful beyond belief
Reviewer: Marie

Purchased for my husband a re-enactment shirt. Took it today to have the cleaners steam press the linen which will prevent shrinkage of the final garment. Much easier on me than washing and ironing large pieces of fabric. It will be ready in a couple of days. Excited to work with your fabric again.

We'd love to know how your fabric comes out after the steam press and how much your fabric shrinks. That sounds like a wonderful way to avoid washing large fabric cuts, and your feedback will help us suggest this to others who also may like to do this too!

The color is very beautiful! I have only just washed it, but have plans for a dress. Just know that it does shed a lot and to check your lint trap often while drying. It was a bit more slubby than usual, but nothing that really bothers me. Will definitely order more!

This weekend, I welcomed the first day of spring by sewing a linen dress for Easter. I chose the NOOR Dress in DUSTY Lotus green linen for this occasion, as I was drawn to the long sleeves and flattering wrap silhouette. Of course, I will wear this dress beyond Easter Sunday, but having a specific end use in mind helps me narrow down the style and fabric color when picking out my next sewing project.
