100% Linen ‘Checkmate’ - Black and White
- French Flax
- 144cm wide
This great linen check has the optimal ‘fashion’ dimensions of 1.5cm x 2cm. We all know linen is great for summer, but blouses, shirts and dresses with a sleeve are also perfect for the cooler times of the year. Checks are fab with solids, but explore some fun contrasting fabrics for your collars, collar bands, plackets and cuffs. Team up with the Black 'Bigger' and 'Biggest' 100% Linen 'Checkmate'. This fabric would behave beautifully in a voluminous sleeve. Be sure to look at our expanding button range to finish off your garment.
This fabric is a tiny bit transparent if you put your hand underneath (in daylight), but when the cloth is around your body as a garment, this always seems to decrease that perception. Select flesh toned undergarments and you will be fine. Skirts may need a light lining, but probably not.
For your cloth edit consider: semi-fitted or looser shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. wrap, fit and flare, tunic, shirt dresses), skirts (eg. wrap, midi, gathered, pleated). It would be great in pants or shorts in summer also.
We stock so many beautiful indie patterns that would be a perfect match with this Linen. Here are some suggestions:
