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".

Beautiful fabric
Reviewer: Maria

I'm obsessed with this weight of linen - can't get enough of it! Lovely feel and drape, light and airy, but not transparent. Absolute pleasure to play with!

Perfect Weight For Tops
Reviewer: shae

I had no pattern in mind when I purchased this linen. I washed and dried it twice, ironed edges with steam, then made a Tunic. It developed as I went, adding lace inserts and flared cuffs to sleeves. I will be buying more if this gorgeous linen!

Such a pretty color!
Reviewer: Ivy

A soft blue-green, so pretty! Just washing it now. I'm inspired to make my nicest nightgown yet of this beautiful fabric.

Wonderful Everyday Linen
Reviewer: Penelope

This is a wonderful everyday linen to wear throughout the summer if you like light, fluid garments. I like it for both unstructured pants (see photos) and shirts with classic shirtmaking details (see Silver Lilac for a photo and the Review for some sewing suggestions). The lightweight linen does not require lining for pants if the design is full and fluid. Everyday lightweight linen pants can be worn at home for working in your sewing studio or out-and-about for a casual meeting with friends. The colors are wonderful, and as with all fabric shopping online, if you are looking to match colors, order a sample, otherwise you will find the photos generally accurate with a few happy surprises. If you wear linen and prefer a more refined look as I do, make friends with your iron.

Museum exhibit background
Reviewer: Ann

I was helping to set up an exhibit of Pre-Columbian Peruvian pottery and textiles (1500-2000 years old). We wanted fabric to line the cases (and hide the various holders and stands). We wanted something with a)a bit of texture, b)soft, subtle variation of color (not a hard solid), c) good drape. Most of the display items have red or brownish red colors, so I knew I wanted an unsaturated blue/gray to set them off. I instantly knew I wanted linen, and "Meadow" was right color. Even the profession museum preparator who was helping us said "that fabric is perfect." It just gently melts into the background and really shows off these beautiful ancient pieces

Bias cut tunic in IL020 MEADOW. Very basic, has only two seams, but since it's cut on a bias, it flows and drapes around the body.

This a vintage Vogue pattern and this color is soft and yummy. I'm going to call this color a soft sea foam green. Looks great with my off white linen wrap skirt and cropped pants. Laura F.

This nightgown is bell-shaped with a rounded hem that's lower in the back. Very comfortable and, I think, pretty!

Embellished cross-front pants in lightweight linen Mushroom. This color is a lovely tan and works as a versatile summer neutral. Just by chance, I had this linen ribbon in my collection and nothing would do but to use it to embellish these pants.

Cross-front lightweight linen pant in Melon. As you can see from this photo, the Melon linen is much more vibrant than the Fabrics-Store website photo, however, the color is lots of fun to wear and always gets many complements.
