PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’.  As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering.   Take into account any additional length etc. 
Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible.  If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

This is one of our Italian Garden Collection prints.  We love versatile cloth here, and this is another of those fabrics that would befit a special event, just as easily as it would a garden or pool party.  This light weight printed linen has beautiful drape, although it is a little crisp until it is laundered.  It is shear, but wouldn’t necessarily be a concern for tops.  Skin toned or black upper undergarments, and a slim lawn slip would do the trick.  This is something very special, and it will be hard to decide what to make.    We also have the same print in white cotton (Amalfi White Cotton).

For your cloth edit consider:  loose tops, tunics and shirts, dresses (eg. wrap, fit and flare, kaftan, trapeze, tunic, shift, sheath, shirt dresses), a kimono or robe (short or full length), skirts (eg. A Line, wrap, maxi, gathered, pleated, panelled with a slight flare).

Linen is a natural fibre and as such cannot be ‘uniform’ in the way man-made fibres can.  What used to be considered ‘irregularities’ in the cloth (such as slubs or irregular lumps and bumps), are now universally embraced as part of the aesthetic appeal of this cloth.   Instead of tumble drying and ironing linen (beyond making the garment), try shaking out the wet garment and drying on a padded hanger, out of the sun.  Linen softens with each laundering, and the crumpled look of linen is very appealing.

 Cloth Care:

We recommend a gentle machine wash or hand washing.  It is important not to wring the fabric or garment, so if you are handwashing, roll up in a towel to press out excess water.  If you tumble dry the cloth, then do so on a cooler setting.  Dryers break down the fibres.  It is preferable to wash inside out.  Wash colours separately.   Shake out the wet garment and dry flat (or on a hanger) in the shade. Use a warm/hot iron and spot test. You may need a water spray bottle to get rid of the wrinkles when you are ironing, or just embrace the beautiful crumpled look of the cloth ;-).  Linen softens upon wearing and laundering.
