This is a really lovely lightweight fabric with such a fresh design. I made a dress and it drapes gently but holds gathers and pleats well. It is very slightly sheer so I think it needs a slip or lining for a skirt unless very full.
The photo doesn’t do this fabric justice. It’s a beautiful pattern to look at and the fabric feels soft, and will be easy to work with. I’m so glad I bought 3m of it!
My sample of this linen and cotton mix was light and gentle, I'd expected a much heavier fabric from its description. I did not go on to buy this fabric as it was a little on the see-through side for me, having white in it (not much actually).
