I paired this fabric with a medium weight linen and made a reversible dress cut on the bias. I've made similar dresses with F/S linens of different weights without any problems. However this time, even though both sides of the dress are the same length, the side with this fabric is more than an inch longer in the center when it is on a hanger. I don't always iron my linens after washing, but this fabric must be ironed because it comes out of the washer not just wrinkled but lumpy. The orange side of the fabric is quite intense, but the beige side with the bright orange peeking through is lovely.

Hi - sorry you have to iron this one to get it even. It's doing that because it is a double layered fabric joined together every centimeter by a hooked thread. So the two cloths will dry and "frump up" in between where they are joined once washed. Ironing gets the cloths flattened to where they "un-frump". Some Jacquards and double cloth yarn-dyes will get like that.

While all the other colors in this IL028 line are more on the neutral side this color is anything but! When I first got it and removed it from the package I was perplexed...it had been folded with the natural side out and my first thought was, "my goodness, it's not nearly as intense as I expected". Then I unfolded it and was blown away by the intensity of the orange color! It is a very strong orange-red and the only 'thing' that I can liken it to is the color of a bougainvillea flower, though not at all 'pink'. The natural side is really lovely with the fiery orange-red peeking through the somewhat open weave of the natural threads...very striking! If you like a linen with presence and power then this is it. Or you may prefer, as I do, the subtlety of the natural side with it's more subdued hint of orange color. The layered effect is really quite intriguing. Hmmm...now, how to use it? I'm thinking another throw for my Arizona room (that's a sunroom for you Northerners).
