Black Astoria Linen Woven-3 units (1.5 yards)adel
Basic black in a creamy mid weight linen with a subtle smooth textured hand, muted linen glow and supple light drape. The suiting/bottom weight is right for a jacket, duster coat, vest, structured dress, skirt or pants. Lovely quality, minimal wrinkling, a beautiful basic 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. My favorite lining for linen is a rayon bemberg or rayon blend.
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.
