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 medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 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.

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).

I came to Fabric-Store looking or a dress-appropriate linen and had to choose from so many colours it was almost overwhelming. When I finally decided upon green, I still had to narrow it down. I could not have made a better choice; Dusty Lotus is absolutely beautiful and just what I had in mind for my dress project. It is helpful to see how and what others have made; and o course I had the option to get a sample. But my monitor proved true; this was the perfect green. Dusty Lotus is highly recommended; and I cannot wait to discover other colours in this shop. Now to find buttons and thread to match!

Love this color
Reviewer: Blair

I have been searching for the right green for months and found this! I am in heaven looking at this green and it was such a pleasure to sew with- I made a pair of Tyler Trousers of my dreams. I came back to to buy even more Dusty Lotus and alas, sold out! Please, restock!

I made two Augustina tops out of this - one for myself and one for my aunt. It's so soft and lovely (drape!) and the color is very flattering for all seasons!

Prettiest fabric
Reviewer: Beth

I love this fabric. I am still looking for a pattern because it is so beautiful I don't want to mess it up! I washed and dried it twice and it is very soft and just the right weight.

The listing photo is close to showing the shade properly but the fabric is just slightly more of a muted green which helps make it subtle and very beautiful! I used it for a custom order for a clients dress and then used it to make a different style dress myself for a fun project. I could not be more pleased.

Absolutely beautiful- it is so easy to work with and I am smitten with the quality and the finish of the fabric. It is definitely one of the best linens I've worked with, and it feels incredibly soft and durable. It is a versatile fabric, and I am confident it will perform well with any pattern you throw at it.

I made a zadie jumpsuit out of this beautiful muted green. It's become one of my favorite me-made pieces.

FS Akira Pattern made in Dusty Lotus. I fell in love with the Dusty Lotus green when Fabrics-store first launched it, knowing I wanted to make a pair of pants and a matching linen tank from it someday. Finally, that day arrived and I sewed this beautiful pair of pants on a Tuesday morning next to a frozen lake, snow falling outside my window, a fire crackling, while I dreamed of the summer days when I will be wearing them most.

I decided to make my first quilted jacket out of this luscious FS DUSTY LOTUS linen. It truly is so soft and the color is just gorgeous, so I wanted to honor how precious it seemed by doing something that felt really special and that I had to put some extra time and effort into (including quite a bit of hand sewing to finish the details.) I'm really happy with the results and wearing it is like a warm soft hug.

With this design, I took inspiration for the bottom half of the dress from a pattern I had on hand and then I designed the ties and a thin strap top of the dress myself. I am delighted with the design. Ma Ma Osa is a handmade clothing brand that offers heirloom quality garments, made by a mother.

This color and texture is a dream! It's the perfect weight for a linen dress and isn't too sheer. The color is very accurate on my screen.
