Introduction:

A new addition to the website and manufactured by the same renowned European company as our summer Linens of 2021. This collection of fabrics are of the same quality and with even more colours designs and natural fibre types. 

Colour:

This superb classic flat woven linen and cotton blend comes to you in Wholesome  Oatmeal (natural tone), making it ideal for a plethora of pleasing garment projects.

Wholesome Oatmeal - Linen Cotton Blend boasts a wonderfully natural look and feel. This wholesome natural blend fabric boasts a reassuring soft drape quality and is stable and strong - super easy to sew.

Properties:

This blended fabric gives you the benefits of both wonderful natural fibres. Cotton blended with linen produces a softer, finer fabric which results in fewer creases when worn, which in turn makes it easier to iron.

Linen & cotton have been used for centuries because of their beneficial properties; cool and breathable, get softer with washing & wear and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage. The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. 

Garment Suggestions:

Suitable whether you are clothing you and yours, or producing a range of niche boutique wear. Natural fibre blend fabrics with timeless appeal. Historical costumiers and craftspeople will love this!

Our very own Pattern StashCordelia Trousers, Amelia Skirt, Lynsey Dungarees & Jemima Waistcoat are suitable to use with the medium weight linens which have slightly more structure. The use of interfacing and or interlining may be required on areas that require more structure such as waistbands, collars etc.

The Layer Up Collection by Sew Different is also ideal for creating a capsule wardrobe of fresh spring-summer Linen and (Linen blend) makes you will want to take through into autumn. 

Classic neutrals form the mainstay of many wardrobes and this cool linen and cotton blend can be worn all through the seasons. Oatmeal will make stylish key pieces. We think this gorgeous fabric has a very artisan like quality, Reenactors and Cosplayers will love this! Perfect for creating Folkstyle clothing (add some personalised embroidery or smocking) and these will become heirlooms of the future, or create seriously stylish pieces worthy of a Vogue photoshoot. 

This excellent fabric will pleat, tuck and form full gathers perfect for re-creating historical styles and the current trend for prairie/buffet style dresses (Wildergown style), Boho & "#cottagecore" style clothing.
