Summer tops
Reviewer: William

I used what I had left from a previous project to make this incredible tank/vest using a merchant and mills pattern that came with their workbook. I had enough to bias cut the entire shirt. It's a bit sheer but I think that is what makes this so beautiful. This fabric handles very well.

Package siitting at the FedEx in our town since Saturday. Today is Monday and if I were to believe them, FedEx will not deliver until tomorrow because "delivery is not due" So it sits there. Attempts to speak to anyone at FS were blocked by a robot phone, although I called several times within store hours. Shipping charges were quite high...fabric is heavy. Avoid this.

I am sorry to hear you couldn't reach us yesterday - Mondays are super busy all hands on deck kind of days, but we are all here. The robot just looks for what line is open to connect you to. You can email me directly at ask@fabrics-store.com and I'll be happy to call you back so you aren't waiting on the phone. Hopefully, FedEx will have your fabric to you today. Please do email me if anything. Have a lovely day

Beautiful, but sheer
Reviewer: Kaylee

I made a maternity dress with this fabric last summer, and it was soooo comfy! It has beautiful texture and bounce. The white is so romantic, but it is too sheer (in white) to wear without a slip or lining! I ended up dying my dress a dark green and it was fine without anything under it.

IL019 Bleached Linen
Reviewer: Anonymous

I have been investigating Eco Dyeing and used this Linen to create scarves. It took the natural dye very will and stood up to the bundling and steaming process. I would recommend this product to anyone that is going to be eco dyeing on linen.

Curtains are perfect.
Reviewer: Bridget

I made curtains for all the rooms in my house in 2004 after ordering ILO19. I have moved since then and brought my curtains with me. They are still going strong even though they are exposed to sunlight etc. Since that time I have added more curtains, used various weights for art projects, clothing and pillows; dyed, embroidered, painted and even stamped it with spackle. I love this store and all their linen weights I have used.

Soft bleached linen
Reviewer: Gladys

i needed a wide linen to make a tablecloth ,a fabric that was a compliment to my machine embroidered lace ,one that was soft but strong enough to support the lace when I cut away the fabric from the back of the lace ,the linen is a joy to sew and the drape is amazing and so easy to work with , wide linen 52" wide in my case is impossible to get here in Australia I am so glad that I found the fabrics store ,I haven,t quite finished my tablecloth but I will send a photo when I do

Beautiful, easily worked
Reviewer: Athena

I used Bleached to make simple bread bags for crusty breads. After washing & pressing it sewed easily even though I'm no talented seamstress! The final products, ironed once, maintain an unwrinkled appearance through multiple foldings & squishings while keeping our bread fresh & the crust crisp (plastic doesn't breath & causes crust softening). IL019-Bleached would also make lovely & easily embroidered lingerie bags...next project, maybe!

Typically Fabulous!
Reviewer: Bernadette

I've ordered a good deal of linen from Fabrics-Store, and the basic bleached is one of my favorites. I sew a lot of reenactor garb (14th and 18th century) and this is the perfect weight and weave for shifts, aprons, caps, men's shirts, and other items. A wash and dry or two and it's ready to go. I love hand sewing with this and some good linen thread - it's so satisfying! I also appreciate how often it come up for sale. I will continue to order again and again from you.

My absolute favorite!
Reviewer: Rose

This is truly multi-purpose and my all time favorite! I have used the bleached softened IL019 countless times for clothing and draperies. It is absolutely the most comfortable fabric to wear on a hot,humid day. I love its softness (wash it a couple of times before sewing to cut down on lint!!). Draperies give just the right amount of privacy yet are sheer enough to let light in and breezes blow.

Perfect for baby
Reviewer: Alexandra

I used 6 yards (more than necessary, could have done 5) of this, split lengthwise and hemmed, to make a woven wrap-style baby carrier, and it is wonderful - smooth, airy, strong, beautiful drape and glides easily over itself. It hemmed very easily and distributes my 25-lb baby's weight evenly over my shoulders & back. The color is also surpringly lovely; I was expecting a bright white, and there is no oatmealishness to it, but there is a slight sunny warmth to the shade.

Toddler SCA garb
Reviewer: Marisa

I used one yard of this fabric to make a long sleeve underdress, and a simple tunic dress for my 2 year old daughter for SCA events. The linen is soft, and light weight, perfect for Pennsic when it is hot. At first, I was going to dye it, but decided to keep it as is.

absolutely perfect :D
Reviewer: vicki

i bought one yard of this linen, to get a real feel for it because those little samples just dont give you a good feel for the drape and hand of the fabric, and i wasnt wasting my time and money on fabric that wasnt up to snuff, after washing and ironing the linen, is is fabulous, the drape is nice, the hand feels lovely, and it takes embroidery well, so i will be buying several more yards soon, :D

I am going to just hand sew the the ends up and use the for face towels they will last for years to come. They are so durable.

IL019 Linen
Reviewer: Kari

I ordered 10 yards of both the Ultramarine Blue & Bleached White and have been nothing but pleased with the product. I have made a norse dress so far and have plans for many more and many tunics for my husband as well from these. The fabric feels luxurious and well made. It washed well both before sewing & after wearing. I will now be ordering all of my linen from fabrics-store.com--I was scared of online fabric shopping because I wanted to be able to feel the texture and quality. This was just about the same price as Hancock Fabrics, but the quality was better & I knew that this was an all nature fiber. At Hancock's you are never quite sure as I have bought many things that were mismarked at the retail store.

Wonderful all-purpose linen
Reviewer: Michelle

I have used this linen to make summer bedding items. For summer sheets and pillowcases it can't be surpassed. It is easy to work with, sturdy and hard-wearing, and very comfortable against my skin. I made several summer "blankets" using a two-yard length, turning a narrow edge, and working a single crochet edge in pastel colors. This linen BREATHES and is very comfortable.

Perfect!
Reviewer: Lauren

I ordered this fabric to make a working class 18th century shift, and it has been a dream to work with. I'd never sewn linen before, and it is just perfect for hand-sewing. It was wonderfully soft on arrival and it has only gotten softer with washing and use. There are very few slubs, but enough to make the piece still look "period." I'll be ordering more colors for my petticoats soon!
