DOVE linen's near white has just a hint of turquoise and grey, mimicking the pale, salty light of JMW Turner's stunning Venetian marine views.
Known as the ‘painter of light’, Turner was entranced by Venice, with its green-blue water reflecting the sky into illusions of infinite, endless space. The floating city became a recurring theme in his breath-taking later work, in which picturesque views are dissolved into sublime, wide open vistas of color and light.

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.

I, too, would like to know where Sheila found the pattern for that blouse. It's a great style!

Yes it is, but unfortunately Sheila did not advise what pattern she used, but we are hoping she will respond to the requests posted for her to share it with us.

Love Dove

I really like the color Dove. I thought it would be grey but it is more of a misty green color. I used it for a dress from NEWLOOK 6340. I had extra material so I am making a simple blouse from it too. I enjoy seeing what everyone else sews so thought I would send a review.

Patricia profile image Beautiful Color and Finish

This linen is beautiful. I ordered 20 yards to make drapes for my bedroom. It is a dreamy blue/green/gray of the softest hue. It is a wonderful neutral color. Very soft and easy to sew.

Ordered this totally forgetting i had bought some a year before.

I ended up making the assembly line kaftan. It's so pretty. I'm lucky i found the previous doggy bag purchase since i ended needing a half yard more for the sleeves. The older purchase was only softened and the texture was slightly different but still soft. It felt thicker for some reason but i really couldn't tell after i had finished the garment. I got so many compliments on the dress and color.

I made sheets and a quilt using dove, meadow, lagoon, and sphinx all together. they are all very greyish, bluish, greens that work together to make an ombre effect.

Having made all the curtains in our home with fabrics-store's linen, I felt I should do the same for the shower curtain in our guest bathroom. I had some IL019 Agave leftover from the guest room curtains so it seemed fitting to use it. I had bought the IL019 Dove for something else, but discovered that the 2 colors work very well together.

I used a yard of Dove SF to make NEWLOOK 6217. I like the weight and drape of this linen and have ordered other colors for fall.

Ann • August 6, 2023

New to picture posting. Hope this works NEWLOOK 6340 dress from Dove FS Signature Finish.

Ann • August 1, 2023

The first garment I've made in years! If I gain so much as a half pound the blouse will be too tight. I found out that I'm no longer a size 8-10, rather a 12. I made all kinds of careless errors, one being cutting lines. I love this fabric!! It is so soft and sewed easily. Now I'm spoiled, I want Signature finish in a burgundy color or eggplant.

Sheila • October 9, 2022

Made an apron front skirt in Dove. I love how the color can look more grey, green, or blue at different times.
