Take advantage of the gorgeous structure and breathability of linen fabric by pairing it with any of these 8 patterns.

Remy Raglan Top // by Sew House 7

Simple lines, quick to sew, with a sophisticated air. This casual/chic look is an essential piece that will pair well with the rest of your wardrobe. The relaxed fit and raglan sleeve make this an excellent project for beginner sewers. Initially designed to be a layering piece under overalls etc., the light fabric does well to add coverage without bulk, or as a stand alone shirt for warmer weather.

Cuff Top // by The Assembly Line (TAL)

There's a good reason why this indie pattern has taken the sewing community by storm! The Cuff Top pattern is a statement piece that is a snap to sew. The amazing cuff is elasticised giving that sleeve its dramatic shape. Sew up one in the morning and be receiving compliments by the afternoon.

Petra Pants // by Closet Case Patterns

Classy, elasticised, and deep pockets - yes please! Do I need to say more? 

Free Range Slacks // by Sew House 7

The Free Range Slacks by Sew House 7 are the ultimate secret pyjamas. Every time you wear these pants the linen will become more and more soft. Light, comfortable and perfect for lounging around home or sipping a cold pour at your local cafe. 

Fringe Dress & Blouse // by Chalk and Notch Patterns

The gentle v-neck and subtle shaping gives this simple dress an elegant shape. Sleeve tabs create interest and lend a casual air to this dress. Make this dress from a single solid colour linen for a perennial wardrobe staple, or decide to be playful with checks or stripes for seasonal flare. Either way, you will be the envy of those limited to what's found in store. 

Box Box // by Merchant & Mills

It takes excellent drafting to make a garment look 'simple' and yet sit beautifully on the body and Merchant and Mills excel in this area. The silhouette of the Box Box dress or top is deceptively clean, but those box pleats and snazzy topstitching really set this top apart from the rest. 

Wattle Skirt // by Megan Nielson

A skirt is a wardrobe staple for most, but that doesn't mean that it has to be boring! The bias cut of this skirt is a dream for playing with checks and stripes, but any way you cut it (pun intended) linen fabric on the bias will float and flatter every body. And it has pockets!

Estuary Skirt // by Sew Liberated

This is the working stallion of the skirt world! Easy for beginners to sew, looks spectacular in linen, designed for utility and good-natured rumpledness; this is the kind of skirt that can collect eggs from the hen house, swish around an indie market and then go hike a hill top! Look great and feel great what ever you do in the Estuary Skirt by Sew Liberated.
