Lovely color, nice weight
Reviewer: Kathleen

I don't have a good eye for color but I know what I like, and this is it. I plan to use it for an early 14th century overdress to be worn with a green kirtle. The linen has some body so it will hang well. Having worked with linen of this weight from Fabrics-Store.com before, I know it will also launder and wear well.

ROSACEAE!
Reviewer: Kevin

Anyone who is interested in liturgy would be perplexed to know what truly is 'Liturgical Pink' or 'Rose'. This fabric is very,very close to that very exotic shade that is used only twice a year: once in Advent and the other in Lent. It's a very unique shade; almost a dark salmon or an orangish pink.To call it 'Rust coloured' doesn't do it justice. It is a great fabric for chasubles, stoles or even altar linen to celebrate the joyful midpoint of the two very penitential seasons.

Love this color!!!
Reviewer: Karen

I was hesitant to buy this after reading reviews describing the color as rusty, but I'm so glad I ordered a sample to decide for myself. Yes, its a warmer rose than one immediately thinks of, but on my monitor, the image is quite close to the actual fabric. It just arrived today and it immediately jumped to the top of my list of favorite linen colors! Its in the washer now, and I can't wait to turn it into renaissance garb. :)

order a swatch first
Reviewer: Lisa

I agree with the reviewer that this color is closer to a sort of rust/orange red than a pink. On my monitor the color appears to be more of a dusky rose. I ordered fabric before ordering a swatch of this color & while the color is pretty it is not what I was hoping for. I don't know who names colors but it's misleading to call this "rose."

Used the free Fabric-Store tank top pattern with the English Rose IL019 and it was a dream to sew. Shape looks a little skewed in this photo but is actually perfect) I did not have enough linen to make the bias binding for neck and armholes but I'm happy with the look of the contrasting cotton, which does not show when garment is on. Keep that in mind if you use the F-S tank top pattern- a good bit more linen is needed than the 1 to 1.5 yards called for if you want the bias binding in the same linen. The fabric was machine washed and dried twice in warm water before sewing. Garment has a beautiful weight and drape. Another great F-S purchase!

Absolutely love this fabric. Such a gorgeous color, very easy to work with and so incredibly soft even before the first wash! I was able to make my husband his own ring sling (pink per request) for our baby girl due later this year.

This is a wonderful "old fashioned" color. I bought it originally to go with a Rio Red skirt. The colors didn't coordinate. So I made a Tawny Port skirt and those two colors look good together. I planned on it just for dancing & performing music (linen is great for both as the same top can work for both heat and cold) but end up wearing it a lot with jeans. Love this color; it's subtle.

I love this fabric! I agree with the other reviews that it seems more red than pink, but it works up beautifully. I cut it with rotary cutters and it came out very smoothly.

16th century Florentine dress - A reproduction of a gown in a painting called "The Preaching of Saint John the Baptist", by Bacchiacca, 1520. Constructed mainly from IL019 English Rose. In reality, I think the color is a bit darker - more red/orange, and less pink - than the product image shows.
