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. 

55% Linen 45% Cotton – ‘Vacances’ White with Blue Stripe

***2.9m left sold as 2.5m***

This fabric is the essence of an understated, cool and relaxed summer ensemble.  The mid-denim colour stripes on white is a classic combination, and the comparable lightness of the cotton/linen blend means it is just what you want to reach for during the warm months.  As is the case with most white fabric, it is a bit sheer, but this isn’t going to be problematic for tops.  If the bottoms are full enough, I also think you would be fine (given neutral undergarments).  Some garments might benefit from a light lawn lining.    The cotton content means the fabric isn’t going to crumple as much as linen, and this might be preferable for some pieces.  This is a beautiful quality designer fabric.

For your cloth edit consider:  I have visons of tops, shirts (with ruffles, or more utilitarian designs), but also smart shorts and wide leg trousers.  Shirt dresses, tunics and Kaftans are also standout possibilities.

Here are some indie patterns suggestions:

Cloth Care:

We recommend a gentle machine wash or hand washing.  Due to the linen content 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.
