We are always looking for quality linen fabric that has great colors. Lava Linen is just that. This 100% linen is 54″ wide and prewashed so it is already soft. It’s a wonderful fabric to work with and we have alrealdy made several garments.
We absolutely love the Remy Blouse pattern. It is a beginner sewing project or a quick sew for an experienced seamstress.
We made the 3/4 sleeve length and the button front detail. There is an even quicker version with the front cut on the fold.
Everyone who has tried on this top loves it, but most want it longer.
Purchase 2 yds and you will have plenty to length the top.
Want something more detailed? You might enjoy sewing the LIberty Shirt.
The Liberty Shirt has diagonal side seams that are angled to the front. The collar, vented sleeves and asymetrical front and back add interesting details. Front topstitching is another design detail
This patterm goes to XXL.
If purchasing Lava Linen, 2 1/2yds will be ample for all sizes.
Even though the fabric is prewashed, we always wash our garment fabric before construction.
