At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

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).

Regency costume

I got this linen to make shirts for my husband and son for their regency costumes. So far I've finished one shirt and I love working with this fabric! It feels so nice and the weight is great for all the gatthers that go into these shirts. I was worried about the collar being too lightweight to stand up because there is no interfacing, but starching ironing make it stiff enough for my purpose. This fabric makes beautiful gathers and it was easy to make a cross-stitch monogram. It is sheer, but that it really what I needed for this project. I can't wait to make the next shirt!

Used the 3.5oz Optic White with some Grey Whisper and Asphalt to make two pair of lovely semi sheer bedroom curtains. All seams are flat felled. This linen is heavenly to work with.

Used the optic white softened lightweight line to make this Regency shirt for my husband. It was a beautiful fabric to work with and produced a fantastic finished product. Can't wait to make a shirt for my son with the same linen!

This was my first sewing project ever. I used the "Phoebe" pattern and cropped to go with my high waisted paints. I love it! Making in more colors.
