Loving Linen

My sister has always laughed at the fact that I have a favorite fabric.

But how can you not love linen??

It’s perfect for historical clothing.

But it’s also perfect for everyday wear.

Some of my favorite me-made pieces are linen, like this dress I blogged about the other day.

My tip for finding great-priced linen? Look at your local thrift shop! I’ve found numerous lengths of linen (3-4 yards!) over the years for around $5 apiece (silk too!). Just don’t be afraid to dig into the bins and have fun hunting.
