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.

Gorgeous
Reviewer: Ivy

After using IL019 for a sheet set for myself, I made a set for my son out of this color. I'm going to put up a pic of the bottom sheet (at close to completion), but the color doesn't look like the color IRL, which is a wonderful woodsy, mossy, olive green. Actually, it looks different in different lights. It was lovely to work with.

Balsam Fir Green
Reviewer: Janet

I used this medium weight Vineyard Green to make a simple gathered skirt with pockets. It was easy to work with, beautiful drape. I am very happy with it. The color is the same green as the balsam fir trees that grow around my house. On my screen the sample and photos of other customers' work appear more muted, grayish blur-green.

Beautiful shade of green
Reviewer: juliana

As always, your linens are a delight to work with. I used this to make a nice hand smocked front jumper for my etsy store etsy.com/ca/shop/JTrove

Great Muted Green
Reviewer: Elizabeth

Most of my clothing is made from linen. Vineyard Green is one of my most versatile colors to use in layering because it has cool and warm elements in the color-- almost making it a neutral. It works with the full range of cool and warm browns, cream, black, navy, burgundy and gold in my wardrobe and several of my scarves. I made a Vineyard Green over-sized top with a bias cut, draped cowl collar several years ago. I was able to find a matching thread so I finished near edge of the cowl with a narrow zigzag and left it raw. I usually wear it over a longer cream linen tank top or long sleeved ice-dyed t shirt. I can wear it with different colored pieces: wrap, jacket, and bottoms and still look coordinated.

Worked up beautifully
Reviewer: Sherrill

I was tasked with making 2 outfits for friends in the Society for Creative Anachronism. They wanted clothing that would be similar yet different from each other. He has a tunic made with the Vineyard Green trimmed with black linen and a purchased embroidered trim. She has an undertunic, with a Viking Apron dress with the same black linen trim and embroidered trim. Over it is a semi-sheer white linen piece with machine embroidered Celtic knots.

Vineyard Green IL019
Reviewer: Brian

This was an example of the color variance of the actual fabric from the appearance on the computer. This was a much more blue green than I was looking for, but it is still a beautiful fabric. I will just need to find a new project to use it for.

Wonderful Drape
Reviewer: Nancy

I wanted to make some of the loose, comfortable styles in linen by Esk*nder and Zor*n that go for rather too high a price. I also wanted a high quality of construction and to flatter my short waisted figure, in colors I like. After washing, tumble drying several times, I cut out the vineyard green (color exact on my monitor)for a long, sleeveless tunic and the ginger in flat-front one-seams and a SW San Diego Jacket. Wow! I was expecting a softer hand due to the treatment and the washing, but it has a drape unlike any linen I have ever worn. It was beautiful to sew and press. It does not stand out stiffly away from my body adding pounds. Easy care (no ironing) as I took extra care with seams and hems. This is the best wardrobe for the high desert. Thrilled.

Great color, good gown weight
Reviewer: Penny

I used this to make a 16th century kirtle using Kass´s reconstructing history pattern. The weight is perfect for this kind of project. The color appears to be a bit less kelly and a bit more olive than the picture above, but all in all I would highly recommend both color and fabric as usual great job in offering this, fabrics-store!

This is a bottom sheet before I finished off the elastic. The color is really richer than it looks here.

I made a pouch for one grandson with a deer on the front - lined with vineyard green linen. Another grandson saw it and said he wanted one with an arrowhead on it, so I had to oblige. Great green!

Slightly better picture of the dress posted previously (sans horse). As mentioned, I just love this color and this fabric.

Love this vineyard green. I did not make this dress (a 14th Century Cotehardie), but I LOVE wearing it. The color is just perfect, especially when working with Kacey. :) Because as we know, everything looks better with my pony. This vineyard green is a nice natural color and the IL019 linen washes up to the most comfortable fabric. It is great to work with and even greater to wear!

I made this short-sleeved tunic out of this linen, and I was extremely satisfied. Beautiful color, beautiful texture, and very soft. Some of the best linen I've ever bought, and perfect for historical costuming.

This is lovely linen. It was the perfect color for an 18th century petticoat to match my Williamsburg cotton print. Great weight for this purpose. I have another petticoat underneath made from your handkerchief linen as well. I'll definitely be buying more of this. The color is nice--a little toward olive green but not as brown which was what I needed. Very rich tone of green!

This fabric is fantastic! I used Vineyard Green for my 9th century Irish leine (with hood!) and it was simply a joy to work with, and even nicer to wear - even in the Florida sun! And I just love love love the colour. You've found a customer for life!

The inspiration for this lap quilt came from a digital piece of artwork my daughter created. I had ordered around 10 different colors from the IL019 line to play around with to determine whether or not I wanted to start making quilts with it. It works wonderfully! ~Lisa

This is a picture of the Sheriff at the Central Coast Renaissance Faire, that just took place this past weekend (July 16 and 17, 2011). I made the outfit from a medium weight green linen doublet with a pleated yoke and brown heavy weight linen pants and hat.

16th c. German dress, inspired by the Augsburger Monatsbilder, done with Vineyard Green in 5.3oz weight. The color was exactly what I wanted and the linen is wonderful to sew!

I made a mid-18th century "work" gown with the vineyard green linen, lined with the natural color linen. It was a nice heavier weight for a working class gown, and the color is wonderful!
