IL019 All-purpose Agave Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2), Width 59"
AGAVE Linen's cold, watery green flowed through Edgar Degas' paintings, illuminating grassy banks, cafe scenes and private interiors with the fresh sheen of Parisian light. Though his subjects were hugely varied, Degas' paintings pivoted around moments of suspended tension, from racehorses to jittery dancers and precariously balanced nudes. Silvery green tones helped him invest this mysterious, magical spark of vitality into his artworks, allowing them to bristle with nervous excitement.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Agave is a sophisticated cool blue-green that gives my Zina shirt dress the ability to move from a day of running errands with a pair of white Chucks and a dark denim jacket to Easter service at church with silver jewelry and strappy heels. The drape is just stiff enough to give the dress structure, yet allows it to flow with movement. I washed it a few times and didn't see noticeable shrinkage or color bleed before and after sewing the dress. The color and softness are such that my husband has requested a button-down shirt of Agave for church and going out, along with a short sleeve of Optic White for vacation. This comes from a man who has only raved over fabric content one other time -- it was a crisp Oxford Cloth shirt in 1996.
When I received my linen, there was a hole through the FedEx package and the plastic that you put it in. There were also 2 holes in my fabric but I have been able to put my pattern pieces around the holes. I thought you might want to know.

This is such an accommodating color--different enough to always be noticed, but subtle, not loud. I have used it in many places in my house (appliance covers, kitchen curtains, napkins) and I am about to start a bias-cut dress for myself. My only caveat: like many greens, there is noticeable variation from lot to lot, so plan ahead.
I was first drawn to this fabric because of its name and fell totally in love after ordering a sample. It can't seem to make up its mind whether to be blue or green or gray. Or is it just me? ;) Our guest room is like a step back in time with furniture that has been in my husband's family for years. Our first guess said she thought the Agave curtains fit with the furniture nicely.
I tackled the Amalfi pattern with no particular plan other than to use a lot of colors. I used 1 yard increments of several colored linens, All-purpose Mix Natural, Autumn Gold, Agave, Wisteria, Sanguine, Lilas – all IL019, and that determined how far down my color piecing work began as I cut the main body pattern pieces from the off-white linen and then worked with the other colors to fill in the gaps.
One hot wash and dry on the right, left I think I did more than that. Just wanted to share a color comparison between LEFT: DB IL019 All-purpose Agave Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) MIDDLE: DB 4C22 Rustic Dried Herb Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2) RIGHT: 4C22 Rustic Dusty Lotus Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2 Personal opinion: when they're next to each other, dried herb takes on more of a brown/yellow cast, and agave takes more of a aqua cast. Even the lotus is a bit of a blue cast in indoor light. Honestly, the comparison makes dried herb and agave look a lot "worse" but I do love all three. The dried herb is quite similar in color to a Son de Flor dress I bought. I do REALLY love the dusty lotus though, it's very nice. It's definitely not an in-your-face green like I would define the color "emerald" but it's really lovely. The other two are a lot more green when not next to other greens. For example, agave is a really lovely green when paired with natural linen.
I wanted a new challenge so I chose the Rose Cafe Bustier Dress pattern by Daria Patternmaking. It was my first time attempting something more fitted, but I also incorporated other techniques I've picked up like a split hem, topstitching, and hacking some panelling into the skirt. I definitely made mistakes, but am excited to use my newly acquired experience towards my future makes.
