Another question for Judith
Reviewer: Mattie

I would love to know if there is a pattern available for the simple pullover top that you have posted here. It is SO PERFECT!

Better in person!
Reviewer: Anonymous

The screen shows a yellowish undertone, but don't be fooled, it's not yellow in real life. This is a very nice neutral tan, perfect for many projects. I love this linen and this color!

QUESTION FOR JUDITH
Reviewer: Susan

Judith, I love the design of the pullover top you made with this linen, and especially the pleated back. Was this made from an available pattern? If so, would you mind sharing the pattern company and number? Thank you so much!

My fabric of choice!
Reviewer: Anonymous

I love this fabric!! I use the natural softened for a variety of projects. I have made bath sheets, hand towels, tea towels, pillow cases, sheets, shower curtain and a dress. I love how easy it is to work with and the durability! The color is the perfect neutral.

So beautiful
Reviewer: Andrea

I bought 10 yards of this fabric and it arrived today. The colour is absolutely fabulous. I was worried that it might be too yellow, but it isn't. I am using all of the 10 yards to make a sheet, quilt cover and two pillow cases for a single bed. Wished I had bought more. Totally loving it.

IL019 natural
Reviewer: janet

Just received this, the colour is superb, more greyish than in the above picture, more towards that of 4C22 but not so dark and grey. Expensive looking colour. Weather--rain on the crop affects colour. The linen seems a better quality now, very nice, very smooth and after washing once at 30 degrees and line drying is still very smooth. I am making beautiful Vogue V113 pants by Mizono which will show the drape.

Surprised, but still pleased!
Reviewer: Joanne

I purchased this fabric for a future reenactment sewing project. I had intended it for a shirt and was surprised that the color in person is darker than it appears in the swatch. While I may not use it for my original purpose, it is a beautiful brown color and the feel of the fabric is soft and fluid.

....from a linen addict.
Reviewer: Patricia

This was my first order from Fabrics-Store.com. (It was very helpful to be able to get samples of the fabrics before ordering!) This is VERY nice fabric. I have already washed and dried it, and I am ready to make a pinner apron for one of my 18th Century living history outfits.

PERFECT!
Reviewer: Rosanne

I was pleasantly surprised with my first purchase. The quality, color, it washed up great the weave tightened slightly to my satisfaction and ironed with ease. PERFECT! Now I can make my quilt. I look forward to more projects using your linen. Thank you.

Heavy duty sheets
Reviewer: Jenny

I bought this fabric to make sheets for our bed. We have had commercially made linen sheets in the past and while I love them my husband's feet destroy them. The natural linen sewed up easily and once washed is nice and soft. We have had pillowcases from this linen for a couple of years now and I am looking forward to seeing how the sheets work out.

Might be nice for home dec
Reviewer: Sondra

This fabric is too loosely woven for my taste. I was expecting a tighter weave for garment sewing. I bought it to make a pair of pants. This would be appropriate for home dec. I probably won't order again.

this is absolutely wonderful linen fabric for all sorts of sewing--clothes and general crafting, purses, totes. I only wish I could make pants as this would work for those as well as dresses, skirts, etc. Makes great tea towels and aprons too!

This photo makes it look a little washed out - but the "home is where the pants aren't" pillow is hand embroidered onto this fabric. It's a beautiful weight for embroidery and sewing was a breeze! Love these linens for bringing pillows to our shop! etsy.com/shop/PrintingByProxy

Here's the 'you are my sunshine' pillow I create and sell in my vintage shop space. The IL019 linen is perfect to both send through my printer for the text and to sew into lovely pillow covers. The hand, weight, and color work well (shown with IL019 transparent yellow) for pillow covers.

This is a (somewhat blurry) picture of a bleached white pillow case trimmed in natural that I made to match the natural duvet cover for our bed. I made the duvet reversible with silver blue on the other side, so the accent vine stitching is meant to match the silver blue. I had originally intended for the silver blue side to be the primary side, but I ended up liking the natural side just as much, if not more! Linen is so nice to sleep under, but I didn't want to have seamed sheets for our queen bed, so a duvet and pillow cases were the next best thing.
