Delicate flowers and butterflies in shades of pink, cream, gold and aqua on black in a fine quality lightweight linen with a subtle smooth matte hand, muted linen glow and light drape. One-way print with a 30" repeat. The light weight is right for a shirt, light vest, dress, skirt, kimono, loungewear or soft pants. Deadstock made in Italy for Southern California designer Monique L'huillier, a beautiful linen which will work lined or unlined. If you are making an unlined jacket or coat, I recommend lining the sleeves to prevent wrinkling and allow other garments to slip on/off easily. If making structured pants, I'd underline the front to the knee to prevent wrinkling.

Pre treat by hand laundering or machine wash gentle and air dry. You can toss linen in the dryer if you want all over wrinkles, but always pre-test a sample, some fabrics respond well, others not so well. Test Test Test. After laundering hand wash or machine launder gentle and air dry. I like to take my linens out of the laundry while still very wet, hang on a hanger and pull and smooth the seams and hems, allowing the weight of the water to do the work, then touch up with an iron or not.
