Did you know that linen fabric is made from the fibres derived from the stems of the flax plant? The fibres are harvested by cutting or pulling the large stems out of the ground and dismantling.
The flax-based material is used mainly for homeware, especially now that popular brands have made it a trendy option for modern households over the last few years!
We’ve all seen the lovely linen summer shirts and dresses that remind us of sunny holidays abroad. Well, there’s a reason a lot of summer fashion revolves around natural materials like linen, and that’s because they’re so breathable.
Linen is a fantastic material for your summer dressmaking needs as it allows the skin to breathe and prevents those nasty sweat patches we all dread in the hot weather!
