IL019 All-purpose Provence Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne spent much of his adult life in Provence, and his mature paintings were a response to his immediate environment, conveying the light, hazy colors and undulating forms of the South of France.
Pale, airy blues like Provence were a recurring feature, spreading out across vast stretches of cloudless sky, craggy mountains, or still patches of sparkling, crystalline water. Cezanne made it his mission to capture the essence of nature as he saw it, writing in his diary, “I owe you the truth in painting and I will tell it to you.”
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers
Would you recommend this weight of linen to make a (men's) lightweight summer suit?
I would recommend this fabric for the pants, but this fabric is only ideal for a jacket if it will be lines and had enough structure inside the jacket. otherwise our 4C22 fabric has the right amount of structure for a lined and unlined jacket.
I love that you give us the weight of the linens, but I can't find the width of the linens listed. I'm I missing the details somewhere?
The width and all fabric specifications are listed in the 'fabric specifications' above. On Mobile, this is minimized and can be revealed by tapping on the small arrow next to the text.
Is this color like a periwinkle?
Yes you could say this is a version of periwinkle.
Hi, Maureen. Are Provence and Wisteria pretty close in color? What is the difference between the two?
No they are different - the Wisteria has more purple less blue than the Provence.
How does Provence compare to Alure?
Provence is brighter and more vibrant than the Allure which has a bit of a grey undertone and is more muted.
I really love this new FS color. I sometimes have a hard time finding linen colors that look really great with my redhead with pink/blue undertones fair skin, but this one is smashing! The color is clear, not greyed or muted. If you're a fan of wisteria or gouache, I think you will love this one. The new color Skylight is great, too! So thankful to FS for making such a wide range of colors, there's something for everyone!
Fabric arrived cut on grain, no loss there! It was a Joy to work with when hemming and mitering corners. I only needed 2-1/2 yds our of the 3 yards ordered. Plan to use the extra half yard to trim edges of placemats I am making. I tore the fabric rather than cut anf it was a clean, straight tear. Then I surged before turning over a 1" hem. The photo was taken before washing as I didn't need to address shrinkage because the overhang was 10", more than enough. After washing it dried on the line in under an hour and ironed out soft and beautiful. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a casual style table cloth.
As a teenager and young adult my mom was determined to teach me to sew but I was too impatient and tired of "home made" clothes when all my friends had store bought trends. 40 years later I'm kicking myself that I didn't appreciate the gift I had in a mother who took my magazine photos and created them to fit me. And oh how I wish I had learned everything my mother had to teach me about her craft. BUT...it's never to late and when I found FS linens I decided to take a chance and see if I could make a dress. As a personal color consultant I was thrilled to find that the samples sent were perfect matches to the colors on my palette. The Provence Blue (signature finish) was the first one I tried. It was my first dress and I chose to trace out a simple dress I own that I know fits and flatters me AND would not be too hard to make. I had just bought a sewing machine and taken 4 lessons so it was a BIG leap. I hit a few roadbumps along the way but in the end (as my mother always said) persistence is the key. I love the fabric, the dress and the color.And the private FB group was a huge support to this newbie.
