Golden Flax - Sketchy Linen is a wonderful, fine, French woven, lightweight, pure linen fabric with stylish versatility.  


Silky natural hued yarns sit across the warp and the weft is woven through in beautiful golden flax hued yarns to produce a sketchy golden beige hue, crosshatched allover effect with the characteristic slubs of linen.

The pleasing warm beige tone of this fabric will sit with so many other things in your wardrobe, grey is an excellent grounding hue perfect to team with bright or rich colours.


Golden Flax is perfect for a mountain of uses, featuring excellent stability and the most beautiful, reassuring drape quality. It will hold crisp details like collars and cuffs, as well as forming superb ruffles, gathers and pleats.  Linen and chambray styles have perennial appeal. 

Natural fibres make this beauty breathable and comfortable- perfect for clothing all members of the family, from rustic prairie dresses and cute rompers to seriously smart shirts.

Garment Suggestions:

Superb for cross-seasonal wear, this neutral beige fabric has so many plus points. The versatile golden flax (an excellent alternative to cream) can easily be styled into smartly tailored styles or much more casual for a washed and worn favourite chambray shirt vibe, that will only improve with age.  Add some French easy-chic styling to your wardrobe.

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. 

Create unique shirts and blouses, shirtdresses, tunics and the most elegant and wearable dresses you will return to season after season. Vogue Patterns V1672 is an elegant wrap bodice dress with a gently flared skirt-perfect for wearing through spring and summer and layering up into autumn. If trousers are more your style, the Zadie Jumpsuit from - Paper Theory Patterns has similar lines to V1672.

Utility styles are super useful (also very on-trend) and never date. The Assembly Line Patterns are ideal for utility styles as are Merchant & Mills and The Makers Atelier. There are of course lots of other fabulous pattern brands out there that just choose patterns that let the fabric sell itself.

Brilliant colour and quality. Washed before cutting out and has washed really well. Looking forward to having a summer wardrobe before summer this year!!
