I almost passed on this Linen Rayon blend. There was only 10 yards, and these days I am really trying to do full size runs. But Connie was adamant that this fabric was the bomb, the kind, the ……. whatever term you choose from your own historical period.
So, Connie being the wisest of people in this regard, I bought what they had, and when I rolled it out on my work table, I was so glad I had. The weave allows for some stretch, so wears like a thick quality knit, but being linen based, has a very non constricting breathable aspect. A veritable contradiction in and of itself.
Despite there being so little yardage, i chose to not use any contrast fabric, as I wanted no distraction from the look and feel. I cut them as classics, to accentuate the contours inherent in that design, which can be less apparent in a cotton or plain rayon.
In XS through Large only (sorry my dear XL’s) for $150
