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. 

French Flax Linen.

This larger scale linen check maintains an optimal ‘fashion’ check ratio, here measuring: 2.7cm x 4cm.  Coordinate with the smaller or 'Biggest' scale checks in the range.  Have fun mixing the three different sizes in your next shirt, blouse, dress or causal pants or jacket.  Checks are fab with solids, but explore some other contrasting fabrics (block colours or florals) for your collars, collar bands, pockets, plackets and cuffs.  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.
